This week, the NYS Liquor Authority was in town to try and sting some businesses at the Erie County Fair.

The SLA went to 5 different places at the Fair that were selling alcohol and put minors inside to "try and buy alcohol".

Two different places served the minors.

According to WIVB:

Licensees and permit holders charged with underage sales can face civil penalties of up to $10,000 per violation, with fines starting at $2,500 for a first-time offense.

Repeat offenders holding a liquor license also face possible suspension or revocation.  In addition, employees or licensees who sell to minors can be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor.  Undercover decoys work under the direct supervision under the direct supervision of SLA Beverage Control."
