Underage drinking sting operation

The Stony Point Police Department, in conjunction with the Rockland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, conducted an operation targeting the sale of alcohol to underage persons, on Friday December 11, 2015. An underage individual was sent into eight local businesses to purchase alcohol and was able to make purchases in only one of the eight establishments. The only sale was made at the 7-11 store on Route 9W where the 20 year old clerk sold beer to the underage person. This was their first violation. The businesses that were in compliance and did not sell to the underage person were Lynch’s Restaurant, Halligan’s Pub, Fireside Restaurant, Mobil Gas on Route 9W, Shell Gas at 9W and Main Street, Food Mart/Gas at Route 9W and Washburns Lane, and Stony’s Food and News in Stony Ridge Plaza. All of the businesses that were in compliance asked the undercover for identification and when he could not provide it he was denied the sale. An arrest was made at the one establishment that made the sale and the defendant was processed and released on an appearance ticket to return to Stony Point Justice Court.
