Police representatives said Monday they were pleased that no store sold alcohol to underage customers during the month's second round of compliance checks Saturday. But Capt. Tom Porter questioned whether the success rate was achieved honestly. He said the agents running the checks observed some "highly coincidental phone calls" during the operation. "It may or may not be that businesses are warning each other that we are out," Porter said. "Hopefully, that is not the case."
Juneau police will continue this summer to check to see that businesses aren't selling alcohol to minors, department spokes-man Capt. Tom Porter said Monday. "We hope we will have a positive effect on reducing the availability of alcohol to young people," Porter said. One person working as a clerk was cited Saturday, and police are investigating whether to cite a second person after a round of compliance checks, he said.
