FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – Forsyth County deputies from the ordinance and permits unit conducted an underage compliance check Wednesday, April 17, throughout the county.

During the operation, a total of 20 businesses were checked for compliance with laws and ordinances related to the sale of alcohol to those who are underage. Sixteen businesses were found to be in compliance and four businesses failed the compliance check by selling alcohol to an underage buyer.

The following businesses were cited during this most recent check:
  • Walgreens, at 1650 Buford Highway (underage sale)

  • Asian Table, at 2950 Buford Highway (underage sale)

  • Los Rios, at 2950 Buford Highway (underage sale) 

  • Chevron, at 502 Lakeland Plaza (underage sale)
According to Sgt. Josh Watson, supervisor of the ordinance and permits unit, those persons who sold alcohol to the underage buyers were cited for county ordinance violation 6-7 (b), which states that it is unlawful for a person to sell alcohol to persons under the age of 21. Those cited will be required to appear in Magistrate Court to answer to the charges.

“If your business is licensed to sell alcohol, please educate yourself and your staff about the laws surrounding this privilege,” said Forsyth County Sheriff Duane K. Piper. “Once again, I commend those businesses that passed the compliance checks and all that do so on a regular basis.”

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office urges each business to review their compliance and stress the importance to all employees. The county requires all individuals involved in selling or serving alcohol to obtain a server’s license through the sheriff’s permits and ordinance unit located on the second floor of 475 Tribble Gap Road.
