Wicomico Business Cited After Failing Alcohol Compliance Check

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a routine compliance check conducted by the Wicomico County Alcohol Task Force resulted in one business being cited for selling alcohol to minors. 

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 30 establishments checked last Thursday, the following failed:

- Lombardi’s Tower of Piza 313 Civic Ave, Salisbury MD.

The following 29 businesses passed, resulting in a 97 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 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.
