Named "Operation Spot Check," the operations involved the use of Maryland State Police cadets for sales to underage persons at various licensed establishments throughout the county.

The following 20 businesses passed, resulting in a 95 percent pass rate:

Groncki said the licensees of the establishments that failed the compliance checks will be required to appear before the Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners for a show cause hearing whereupon they could face fines or suspensions of their liquor licenses, or both. The clerks who sold the alcohol to the cadet will be charged criminally by the officers of the Task Force, according to Groncki.
