ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies from the Angelina County Sheriff's Office conducted alcohol compliance checks on 15 area businesses Thursday night. All 15 businesses passed the check.
According to Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches, deputies went out with minors, who tried to purchase alcohol at the businesses. The minors were unable to purchase alcohol at any of the businesses. Each cashier either requested the minor's identification or the person's age.
"We really had to say that for Christmas the stores did good and did their job to make sure minors aren't buying any alcohol to where they can go out there and get involved in a wreck or get killed or get other minors in trouble," Sanches said.
