SOMERSET COUNTY, Md. - Four Somerset County businesses were caught selling alcohol to minors, according to Maryland State Police.

Troopers from the Maryland State Police and Officers from the Princess Anne Police Department conducted a collaborative effort and performed numerous alcohol compliance checks at retail establishments in Somerset County Wednesday.

Law enforcement officers throughout Somerset County ensured that various retail establishments which hold a Somerset County Liquor License are denying sales of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21 years old.

A total of 19 retail establishments were checked.  

The following retail establishments were not in compliance with the provisions of the law and sold alcoholic beverages to a minor:

Somerset County Liquor Dispensary, Princess Anne, Maryland
Crisfield Oceanic, Crisfield, Maryland
Shore Stop, Crisfield, Maryland
King's Creek Market, Princess Anne, Maryland

The following retail establishments complied with the provisions of the law and denied the sale of alcoholic beverage to minors:

In an effort to keep our teenagers safe during this upcoming holiday season, troopers say they will continue with unannounced compliance checks to ensure that alcoholic beverages stay out of the hands of minors.  

Historically, the holiday season sees an increase in alcohol related collisions; many of these collisions involve serious bodily injury.  This collaborative effort between law enforcement partners will continue throughout the holiday season.
