EASTON, Md.- Easton police say four businesses failed an alcohol compliance check conducted the night before Thanksgiving.

Police said Wednesday's operation targeted retails establishments that hold a Talbot County Liquor License and participate in the sale of alcoholic beverages to the public.

Police said that by using an adult informant (under the age 21), officers monitored to see if businesses would either provide the alcoholic beverage or complete the purchase without first demanding the informant’s ID or discovering the informant as a person under the age 21.

Out of a total 22 businesses checked, police said four of them were found to have either served an alcoholic beverage or completed a sales without properly identifying the informant.

According to police, the businesses found to be in violation included:

  • El Dorado Restaurant (Marlboro Avenue)
  • Safeway Grocery Store (North Washington Street)
  • East End Liquors (East Avenue)
  • Banning’s Tavern (Dover Street)

Each employee found in violation was issued a criminal citation and the Talbot County Liquor Board was also notified of the violations, police said.
