SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say six businesses failed a routine Wicomico County Alcohol Task Force compliance check conducted on Wednesday.

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

John Groncki, chief liquor license inspector for the Wicomico Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners, said that of the 40 establishments checked, the six listed below failed:

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.

The task force is comprised of the Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners, Maryland State Police, the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, the Salisbury and Fruitland police departments, as well as the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office.
