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.
