SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say two businesses failed a routine Wicomico County Alcohol Task Force compliance check conducted 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 18 establishments checked, the two listed below failed:

  • Center City Exxon, 500 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Thirsty's South, 1053 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury

The following 16 businesses passed, resulting in a 90 percent pass rate:

  • Applebee's Neighborhood Bar & Grill, 2703 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury 
  • Pitt Stop Beer & Wine, 34430 Old Ocean City Road, Pittsville
  • Chili's Grill & Bar, 2705 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Adam's The Place for Ribs, 219 N Fruitland Blvd., Fruitland
  • Hunan Palace, 1600 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • La Roma Pizza & Restaurant, 934 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Lucky Star, 208 N. Fruitland Blvd., Fruitland
  • Mojo's, 213 E Main St., Salisbury
  • Outback Steakhouse, 8245 Dickerson Lane, Salisbury
  • Plaza Tapatia, 1045 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  • Shore Stop, 1020 Eastern Shore Drive, Salisbury
  • Eden Valero, 3602 Stockyard Road, Eden
  • Vintage Beer & Wine, 601 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury
  • Country Farm Store, 104 E. Gordy Road, Salisbury
  • Eagle Express Mart, 101 N. Camden Ave., Fruitland
  • Quick Food Mart, 900 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury

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 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.
