On Friday, October 4, Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) conducted alcohol inspections in Kearney and Buffalo Counties.
In total, 62 businesses were inspected. Two of those businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a compliance rate of 97 percent.
In Buffalo County, 47 businesses were inspected with one selling alcohol to a minor. In Kearney County, 15 businesses were inspected with one selling alcohol to a minor.
The businesses that sold alcohol to a minor were:
Hy-Vee Store #1323 – Kearney (checked ID, sold to minor)
Main Street Liquor – Minden (checked ID, sold to minor)
Businesses that fail the inspections are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
This operation was made possible thanks in part to a grant for $2,124 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office.
