Four cited for providing alcohol to minors during Glendora sting

GLENDORA — Police and California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control officials cited four people this week who purchased alcohol for minors during a “shoulder-tap” sting operation, authorities said Wednesday.
The operation took place Saturday at business throughout the city, Glendora police Cpl. Shawna Celello said in a written statement.
The four adults who purchased alcohol for underage decoys working with police face a minimum penalty of a $1,000 and 24 hours of community service if convicted, Celello said.
“Under the program, a minor under the direct supervision of a peace officer will stand outside a liquor or convenience store and ask patrons to buy them alcohol,” Celello said. “The minor indicated in some way he or she is underage and cannot purchase the alcohol.”
Funding was provided by a grant from the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control through the department’s Grant Assistance Program.
