State Patrol: Two businesses fail alcohol compliance checks in Custer County
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — During the evening hours on Wednesday, the Nebraska State Patrol conducted alcohol compliance checks at retail outlets in Custer County. Two were found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to a minor: Middle Loup Store in Sargent, and Custer’s Last Stop in Ansley.
During the effort, fourteen businesses were checked. The retail outlets checked included convenience, liquor, and grocery stores, as well as restaurants and bars.
Law enforcement performs compliance checks to ensure businesses are complying with the state’s alcohol laws and to decrease youth access to alcohol. This activity was funded, in full or in part, from Federal or State funds received from the Division of Behavioral Health of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and/or the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
