During the evening hours of Friday, December 7, Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) conducted alcohol inspections in Phelps County. The operation was made possible thanks in part to a grant from Region 3 Behavioral Health Services.
A total of 19 businesses were inspected. Two sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 11 percent. One of the businesses failed to check the minor’s ID.
The businesses which failed the inspections were:
Gutterz Fun Center – Holdrege (checked ID, sold to minor)
Holdrege Market Plate – Holdrege (did not check ID, sold to minor)
Businesses that fail the inspections are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
