The Lincoln County Alcohol Enforcement Team, assisted by Troy Police Department, conducted their third round of Alcohol Compliance Checks Ė continuing their focus on preventing the retail availability of alcohol to minors in Lincoln County.

The team concentrated efforts in the Troy area and found the results follow the countywide trend toward more responsible sales and service regarding youth. Seven of the eight businesses involved in the operation passed their compliance check - the employee asked for valid ID, verified the buyer was under 21, and refused the sale or service of alcohol to the minor.

Town Pump, Booze Ní Bait, Steinís Market, Vets Bar, The Silver Spur, Trojan Lanes, The Halfway House passed their compliance check.

The Home Bar failed

The latest results bring the countywide pass rate up from less than 50 percent in 2008 to nearly 80 percent.

Montana Board of Crime Controlís Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) grant will continue to fund enforcement operations aimed at reducing both retail and social availability such as compliance checks, party patrols, shoulder tap operations and source investigations through December 2012.
