17 Washington Parish Businesses Sold Alcohol to a Minor in Latest Operation

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
  • Winn-Dixie
  • CVS
  • Shell
  • 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.”
