Posted By on Tue, Mar 4, 2014 at 7:47 AM

Boise Police say about 10 percent of Boise businesses that were put to the test in an alcohol compliance check failed, by serving or selling alcohol to minors.

89 locations throughout Boise were checked over the weekend of March 1 and 2nd, and Boise Police say eight served or sold alcohol to minors, approximately the same percentage as the last check done in December 2013.

Citations were handed out at:
-Grocery Outlet on Fairview Ave.
-Sono Bana Restaurant on N. Orchard St.
-Luciano's Italian Restaurant on N. Orchard St.
-Albertson's at Orchard & Overland
-Jackson's at Vista & Sunrise Rim
-Albertson's on Federal Way
-M&W Market on Warm Springs Ave.
-Chili's Restaurant on Broadway Ave

A person who sells or furnishes alcohol to a minor faces possible fines between $500 and $1,000 and up to a year in jail.

Licensed establishments caught selling alcohol to a minor can have their license suspended for 10 days on a first offense within three years; a 15-day suspension for a second offense, and and 180-day suspension for a third offense.

Police said this past weekend that they also issued 19 citations to minors possessing alcohol after law enforcement received several citizen complaints about loud parties that involved underage drinking.
