Three store clerks were cited for allegedly selling alcohol to minors during an undercover decoy operation in Glenn County.
The Glenn County Sheriff’s Office and the Inter-Agency Narcotics Task Force worked with Agents from Alcohol Beverage Control to conduct the operation Friday night, January 19th.
They visited 8 local establishments, with the minor buying alcoholic beverages from Arco/AMPM on West Wood Street in Willows, the Chevron Station at County Road 99 W in Willows and Bubba’s Place on West Walnut Street, Willows.
The following people were issued misdemeanor citations for selling alcoholic beverages to a minor:
- 26 year old William Rippeanderson, employee of Arco/AMPM
