Thirteen Tacoma businesses sold alcohol to minors during a compliance check on June 12.

Two teams of officers from the State Liquor Control Board checked 45 businesses during the operation. The agency sends adults aged 18-20 into restaurants, grocery stores and liquor stores to try to buy alcohol. If they are asked for identification, they must show their actual driver’s license.

The fines or license suspensions vary depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which the business has been cited in the past two years, according to a release. Clerks who sell can also receive a criminal citation.
