North Forsyth gas station worker cited for underage alcohol sale

NORTH FORSYTH — A 21-year-old employee was recently cited for selling alcohol to a minor at a north Forsyth gas station.

The northeast Forsyth man reportedly allowed a person younger than 21 to buy beer at the QuikTrip on Keith Bridge Road (Hwy. 306) just off Exit 17 of Ga. 400, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report.

The minor was part of an undercover sting that the agency periodically conducts, where he or she attempts to buy alcohol at a gas station, restaurant, bar or hotel.

An undercover deputy observes the scenario to record whether the employee completes the purchase.

In this case, the cashier did not check the identification of the customer before proceeding with the sale, which occurred about 6:30 p.m.

Both the alcohol and the money used for the purchase were returned, and the cashier was issued a citation for Magistrate Court.
