Illinois State Police recently visited 24 businesses in Plainfield and Shorewood to conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement. Eight businesses failed the check.
Agents patrolled the evening of Nov. 28 to determine which businesses might be selling alcoholic beverages to those under the age of 21, according to a news release from state police.
Employees from eight businesses, including BP Amoco (Shorewood), K’s Food and Liquor, Jewel (Shorewood), Circle K, Route 52 Wine and Spirits, Meijer, Route 30 Wine and Liquor and Cheap Cheap Liquor were arrested for unlawful delivery of alcoholic liquor to a minor, police said.
All eight were released on a notice to appear in court.
“The Illinois State Police commends establishments which do not sell alcohol to minors,” the release said.
The Illinois Department of Transportation, Division of Traffic Safety, funded the project.
