Officers with the Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Control and Kansas University and Lawrence police departments Thursday night cited five people in an effort to crack down on underage drinking and fake IDs.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers checked nine licensed establishments as part of the Fake ID 101 task force operation. The citations included four charges for possession of alcohol by a minor and three charges for possession or use of a fake ID. Some people were cited for more than one charge.
ABC officers also issued administrative citations to three establishments — Bullwinkle’s, Tonic and Phoggy Dog — alleging employees allowed minors to possess alcohol. The ABC also cited Quinton’s Bar and Deli for failing to frame and hang its state liquor license in a conspicuous area.
