GARDEN CITY, Idaho -- Two minors walk into a bar and attempt to purchase alcohol. It's an illegal situation, but Saturday night, the minors weren't the ones facing punishment.
That's because the pair were working with Garden City Police to find stores, taverns and bars that would sell alcohol to minors.
The "Compliance Checks" involve the minors entering the business and attempting to purchase alcohol. If employees sell it to them, they face a hefty fine and up to one year in jail.
Of the 28 compliance checks that took place Saturday night, five employees at various businesses were cited for selling beer or wine to the kids.
Garden City Police Chief James Bensley said he was pleased there were only five businesses out of compliance, but added that even one is too many.
