(North Platte, Neb.)- The Nebraska State Patrol conducted compliance checks the end of May at 13 retail outlets in Custer and Thomas counties.
During the May 31 checks, of the eight businesses checked in Custer County, one business, Fiesta Brava in Broken Bow, was found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to a minor. In Thomas County five businesses were checked with two, Sandhills Oil Company in Thedford, and Cattlemen’s Restaurant in Seneca, found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to a minor. The retail outlets checked during the effort included convenience, liquor and grocery stores, as well as restaurants and bars.
Law enforcement performs compliance checks to ensure that businesses are complying with the state’s alcohol laws and to decrease youth access to alcohol.
Compliance checks in Custer and Thomas counties were conducted thanks in part to a $1,320 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
