An Underage Drinking Compliance Initiative has been carried out in Putnam and Westchester Counties. Plainclothes New York State Police in Troop K made unannounced visits to 14 retail establishments with an underage operative, utilizing a valid New York Driver’s License. 12 establishments were in compliance and refused to sell any alcoholic beverages to the underage operative. Two establishments illegally sold an alcoholic beverage to a minor resulting in two arrests. A 20-year old clerk from Mohegan Lake at a Putnam Valley store and a 37-year old Cortlandt Manor man employed in Cortland were issued appearance tickets. New York State Police routinely conduct underage drinking enforcement operations in an effort to curb alcohol abuse and DWI incidents involving teenagers.
