A compliance check of 24 retail businesses in San Luis Obispo on Monday in which a minor attempted to purchase alcohol found that an employee at all the businesses checked for identification and did not sell alcohol.
The compliance check was conducted by investigators from the San Luis Obispo Police Department and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and funded by an ABC grant assistance program.
The businesses will receive a letter informing them of the check and the positive result, according to a news release from the department.
In the last operation in San Luis Obispo on Oct. 18, 21 businesses were checked for compliance and eight sold alcohol to the minor.
