One clerk at a local business was arrested and cite released for selling alcohol to a minor decoy, according to the Fontana Police Department.

A total of 14 locations in Fontana were visited during the police operation on Aug. 29, and employees at the other 13 locations did the right thing by checking the identification of the minors to determine their age and refused to sell them alcohol, police said.

The clerk who sold to the minor will face a minimum fine of $250 and/or 24 to 32 hours of community service for a first violation.

In addition, California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will take administrative action against the alcoholic beverage license of the business where alcohol was sold to the minor. That may include a fine, a suspension of the license, or the permanent revocation of the license.

ABC is conducting the compliance checks statewide to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors.
