Five Spokane County businesses cited for selling alcohol to minors

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - On May 5, five Spokane County businesses sold alcohol to minors during compliance checks conducted as part of a joint enforcement effort by the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB), the Spokane Police Department and the Spokane Fire Department.

Officers checked 11 businesses for sales/service of alcohol to minors, and five were cited for selling alcohol to investigative aides working with officers. A sixth business was cited for Employee Drinking on Duty, in violation of state liquor laws and regulations.

The WSLCB and local authorities regularly conduct compliance checks of area businesses licensed to sell alcohol. These businesses include spirits, beer and wine restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and sports/entertainment facilities. Compliance checks are proven tools to reduce the sale of alcohol to minors.

Police and liquor enforcement officers conduct compliance checks assisted by investigative aides ages 18 to 20. They must present their true identification if asked by a clerk. However, they may attempt to be evasive if asked their age but not asked for their I.D.

Liquor enforcement officers are empowered to issue Administrative Violation Notices (AVN) to businesses that violate state liquor laws and regulations. Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited. Clerks who sell alcohol to minors can also receive a criminal citation. Liquor enforcement officers review the past two years when determining fines or license suspensions.

The following locations sold alcohol to a minor:

  • Double Dribble, 8108 N. Division St., Spokane
  • Studio K Bar & Grill, 2810 E. 29th Ave., Spokane
  • Big Super Store, 18616 E. Appleway, Green Acres
  • Casa De Oro, 2820 E. 29th Ave., Spokane
  • Blvd House of Music, 230 W. Riverside Ave., Spokane
