Undercover Operation in Texas Leads to Arrests for Illegal Sales
Texas police sent an undercover minor to three stores to purchase tobacco and alcohol, resulting in two arrests.

According to KAMR/KCIT in Texas, Texas Police Department announced on Facebook that they dispatched a 17-year-old undercover informant to purchase tobacco and alcohol products from these three stores. Officials involved stated that they hoped store clerks would verify the informant's identification to confirm their age.


Two shop owners have been arrested for allegedly selling tobacco or alcohol products to individuals under the age of 18, while the police have stated that the third store did not commit any violations.


The Texas Police Department has confirmed that all relevant information will be turned over to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and the Texas Comptroller's Office for administrative sanctions. The police department also stressed that all businesses selling tobacco or alcohol products must verify the age of their customers in advance, ensuring compliance with legal regulations when selling alcohol and tobacco products.
