Three of Easton's liquor-selling establishments were allegedly caught selling alcohol to underage customers during a recent alcohol compliance check conducted by the Easton Police Department.
Krajcik said two underage college students were used in the sting. The students did not carry identification and if they were asked of their age, they were instructed to respond truthfully. Additionally, police posted advance notice in the local press informing them of an upcoming sting.
Police traveled to package stores during the first night of the sting. A 24 pack of Bud Light beer was allegedly sold to the underage students at White Hen Pantry and an 18 pack of Bud Light was allegedly sold at Pop's.
Last fall, White Hen Pantry failed a similar compliance check and had its liquor license suspended for three days as a result.
LOCO allegedly sold to the students during the Dec. 1 sting. All other stores and restaurants passed the compliance check, Krajcik said.
The three establishments will appear before the board of selectmen at an upcoming hearing.
"This information was forwarded to the town administrator and the board of selectmen for appropriate action by the licensing authority," Krajcik said.
