Pleasanton Liquor Store's License Suspended After Selling to Underage Customer
This is the third violation in three years for Perry Liquor. The 18-year-old who bought the alcohol at Perry's Liquor gave it to a 15-year-old outside the store, according to officials at the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
A Pleasanton liquor store had its liquor license suspended Thursday for selling alcohol to an underage person for the third time in three years, according to the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
Perry's Liquor, located at 4301 Valley Ave., can no longer sell alcohol until the store is either sold or the new owner reapplies for a license to sell alcohol. The store also has the option of transferring the license to a different business, ABC spokesman John Carr said.
According to the beverage control department, a clerk at the store sold alcohol to an 18-year-old woman who then left the business and gave it to a 15-year-old waiting outside.
This is the store's third violation in the last three years, and the fifth violation in eight years, the department said.
The store employee and the 18-year-old were issued misdemeanor citations for the sale, and a report of the violation has been forwarded to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, the department said.
