Two businesses fail alcohol compliance checks in Dawson County
Two out of the 10 businesses checked during the latest round of alcohol inspections failed their checks in Dawson County.
Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol said they held the alcohol inspections on Friday evening, supported in whole or part by a grant from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.
In total, ten businesses were inspected. Two businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 20 percent. Only one of the businesses inspected failed to check the minor’s ID. The businesses included liquor stores, convenience stores, bowling alleys, restaurants, and bars.
The businesses which failed the inspections were:
- Drunkin Buzzard – Eddyville (Sold to minor, checked ID)
- Casey’s General Store #1747 – Lexington (Sold to minor, did not check ID)
Businesses which fail the inspections are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
