FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: EIGHT CHARGED IN UNDERAGE ALCOHOL OPERATION

This week officers of the Jackson Madison County Metro Narcotics Unit conducted an operation targeting the illegal sale of alcohol to minors. Investigators utilized two adult informants under the age of 21 to attempt alcohol purchases at 31 local businesses. The informants successfully purchased beer from 8 locations in the city. The clerk at each location who sold to the underage adults was issued a citation to appear in Jackson City Court on a charge of Selling Alcohol to an Underage Person.

The locations and the name of the clerk from whom the purchases were made are as follows:

1. Phillips 66, 2085 Hollywood Drive
Clerk: Rasheeda McClarin

2. Citgo, 588 Old Hickory Blvd.
