3 businesses cited for furnishing alcohol to minors

SHERIDAN — Alcohol servers from three different Sheridan businesses were cited for furnishing alcohol to a minor during a routine compliance check organized by the Sheridan Police Department Tuesday night.

Employees at Pizza Hut, the Eagles Club and Star Liquor sold alcohol to an underage decoy, and the transition was witnessed by an out-of-uniform police officer.

Sheridan Police Lt. Chris Dahmke said police check every local establishment that sells alcohol at least once a year to ensure servers are following laws.

The majority of locations checked passed the test by refusing to serve the decoy, and were instead rewarded instead of cited.

“We try to give them every break we can to make sure they check that stuff,” Dahmke said. “Still, a few places every year will mess up.”
