PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Four clerks have been cited in central South Dakota after they sold alcohol to underage individuals during a compliance check.

Pierre Police Capt. Elton Blemaster says the clerks didn’t check the identifications of the two underage people working with authorities.

Each clerk has been cited for furnishing alcohol to someone over 18 but less than 21.

Blemaster says the state’s Department of Revenue and Regulation will be notified about the failed checks. The agency oversees alcohol licenses.

The businesses where the clerks failed the inspections are: Fresh Start and Chekkers, both on East Wells Avenue in Pierre; Cowboy Country Store on West 1st Avenue in Fort Pierre; and Medicine Creek on West Pierre Street in Blunt.



Authorities in Hughes and Stanley counties conducted compliance checks on 18 area businesses.
