Grant helps stop sales to minors

March 24, 2010

Over the last two months Costa Mesa police have arrested 20 people through seven undercover alcohol law enforcement stings.

Thanks to a grant from California Alcoholic Beverage Control, police have conducted several types of stings throughout the city since the beginning of the year.

Officers have targeted both on-sale and off-sale locations, meaning businesses that sell alcohol to drink on the premises like a restaurant, or to take elsewhere like a liquor store.

Twenty people have been arrested for providing alcohol to minors or carrying fake IDs.
