In yet another check of parish businesses to see if any will sell alcohol to a minor, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted an undercover operation on September 29th and 30th. Twenty-eight parish businesses were visited by a minor wishing to purchase alcohol. Clerks at seventeen parish business establishments willingly sold alcohol to a minor without checking for proper identification.
Bogalusa businesses which sold alcohol to a minor were:
- Highway 10 One Stop
- Chevron on Sunset Drive
- Chevron on Highway 10 east
- Jr. Food Mart
- Pumping Station
- Texaco on Avenue F
- Texaco on Highway 21 South
- JZ Quick Shop
- Liberty on Highway 10 east
Franklinton area businesses which sold alcohol to a minor were:
- Town Crier
- Bridge Store
- Chevron on Washington Street
- John’s Shop
In addition to underage alcohol sales, the Diamond Vapor Lounge in Franklinton sold vape items to the underage buyer.
The Varnado Chevron also sold alcohol to a minor.
“To say that this is unacceptable is a gross understatement,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “I can fathom no excuse why any business would sell alcohol to a minor. It’s a simple equation. Check the driver’s license on all purchasers. If the buyer is underage, do not sell them any alcohol. End of discussion.”
