Several retail stores across Fayette County have been cited for violations related to underage alcohol sales.

On Friday Jan. 11, Fayette County Sheriff's deputies, along with a WV Alcohol Beverage Commission agent, conducted 32 attempted underage alcohol purchases from alcohol retail locations across the county.

Seven of these locations sold alcoholic beverages to under-cover minors.

The locations whose clerks were cited were: the Ansted Shell Store, Dorsey's Hogtails in Hico, the Hico location of New River Foodland, the Hico location of Sherry's, Drifter's Bar in Glen Jean, the Cold Spot in Glen Jean, and Sam's Place in Mount Hope.

Sheriff Kessler added "Selling alcohol to under-aged minors is entirely unacceptable, and we are always pleased to work with the WV ABC in efforts to deter this illegal activity. These alcohol stings are performed several times per year in Fayette County, and are always conducted in cooperation with the State's ABC agents."

These violations remain under investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff's Department and the WV Alcohol Beverage Commission.
