ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two clerks at Rockland businesses were arrested on Monday during a alcohol compliance check conducted by the Ramapo Police Department.

Held in concurrence with the Rockland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and Rockland County STOP-DWI, officers used an undercover agent under the age of 21 to try and purchase alcohol at 15 businesses, said Ramapo Sgt. Chris Franklin.

Of the 15 businesses checked, all but two were found in compliance, Franklin said.

"We are striving to have all of the businesses in compliance, but the numbers are an improvement," he said.

The two stores that did sell to minors included the Look and Pick Convenience Store on North Main Street in Hillcrest, and Crest Hill Liquors on North Main Street in Spring Valley, police said.

The store representatives, a 65-year-old man from Spring Valley and a 46-year-old man from Congers, were charged with sale of alcohol to a minor, a violation of the state Alcohol and Beverage Control Law.

Both defendants face fines and may be required to attend a class that teaches them about the dangers of selling alcohol to underage residents, Franklin said.

The checks are funded by grants from Rockland County STOP-DWI, he added.
