SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a routine compliance check conducted Thursday by the Wicomico County Alcohol Task Force resulted in three businesses being cited for underage alcohol sales.

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.

Richard Gardner, chief liquor license inspector for the Wicomico Board of [Liquor] License Commissioners, said that of the 14 establishments checked Thursday, 11 passed and three failed, for a 79 percent pass rate. 

The following three businesses failed the check:

  1. Naylor Food Corp., 1101 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  2. Reign Restaurant & Event Center, 331 Civic Ave., Salisbury
  3. Brew River, 502 W. Main St., Salisbury 

The following 11 businesses passed the check:

  1. Royal Farms, 1033 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  2. Express Food Store, 900 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  3. Center City Exxon, 500 S. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  4. Shore Stop, 27430 Ocean Gateway, Hebron
  5. Eagle Express Mart, 1312 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  6. Cam Market, 739 East Church St., Salisbury
  7. T’s Mini Market, 400 N. Salisbury Blvd., Salisbury
  8. Adam’s Taphouse Grille, 219 N. Fruitland Blvd., Fruitland
  9. Box Car 40, 7456 Gumboro Rd., Pittsville
  10. Market Street Inn, 130 W. Market St., Salisbury
  11. Fountains, 1800 Sweetbay Drive, Salisbury

Gardner 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 Gardner.

The task force is comprised of the Wicomico County Liquor License Department, 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.
