Four arrested for allegedly buying alcohol for minors in SLO

Four people were arrested in San Luis Obispo for allegedly buying alcohol for minors.

Officers with the Cal Poly Police Department and the state Alcoholic Beverage Control operated a sting in which a juvenile was used as a decoy. The minor would ask adults entering liquor or convenience stores if they would purchase the alcoholic beverages. Forty-six adults were contacted, with four allegedly agreeing to the purchase.

Of those four, three agreed to make the buy, and one was arrested for allegedly being a minor in possession of a false identification card.

The penalty for furnishing alcohol to a minor is a minimum fine of $1,000 and 24 hours of community service.

The people arrested were not identified by the authorities.
