Illinois State Police Conduct Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement

Eight people have been ticketed for selling alcohol to underage individuals.

Captain Ryan Shoemaker of the Illinois State Police announced the results of their Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement surveillance conducted in White and Crawford Counties.

Out of the thirty-three establishments they observed, two individuals in two local businesses in White County were involved in the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors.

21-year-old Skylar Morss, an employee at Doug’s Food Mart in Norris City, and Carmi Walmart employee 37-year-old Justin Jones were both cited for Unlawful Delivery of Alcoholic Liquor to a Minor, a Class A Misdemeanor after they both failed to card minors.

Captain Shoemaker says the ultimate goal with the project is to enforce underage drinking laws and save lives by preventing impaired driving crashes and fatalities.

    At the age of 18 they are old enough to make the decision to enlist in our military .They are man or woman enough to go to war but not enough for alcohol or tobacco. How messed up is this in our country.

    These comments I agree with .PTSD come in all forms..and avg age since the 1960?s is 17..6 yrs old .. that’s like 65 yrs of battling a wrong agenda.. especially when we enlist men straight out of highschool or a boot camp for bad teens!!!
