Sheriffs department should do this type sting as often as possible. huge drinking and drug use problems at SRV and MV. Dont arrest the kids, get them some help and nail the store owners and adults who participate.

Hope the minor decoys are protected as they put themselves at risk.

I would like a list of the establishments that were busted so I don't continue to give them my business, do they have a published list?
