TABC Sting Targets Suspect Store

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission plans to take action against the liquor store it suspects of selling to a minor who was among six who died in a Granbury mobile home fire.

In a recent undercover sting enforcement, TABC sent a minor into USA Liquor on Camp Bowie Boulevard, and the store sold the minor that was under surveillance some alcohol.

TABC Captain Charlie Cloud says they probably won’t be able to bring charges directly connecting the store with the fire deaths because it would be extremely difficult to prosecute. In this case though, the liquor store and the clerk face possible sanctions.

They suspect one of the teens who died in the fire bought liquor at the store two weeks ago.

    so sad that our youth are in such a hurry to grow up……they forget about acting responsble……you don’t need alcohol to have a good time….it distorts your thinking & perception…

    my heart goes out to the families that lost loved ones in that tragedy….
