Liquor store reps apologize for sale to underage agent

April 29, 2009|By DAN DEARTH

The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, met Wednesday with representatives of the Keedysville Country Store to discuss an incident in which an employee allegedly sold alcohol to an underage police agent.

The sale occurred March 19, Washington County Sheriff's Department Deputy Ryan Socks said.

The owners of the store, which is at 19409 Shepherdstown Pike (Md. 34), apologized for the incident.

Robert L. Everhart, liquor board chairman, has said a business that sells alcohol to an underage person faces a maximum $2,500 fine and the loss of its liquor license, but that penalty rarely is imposed.

The board agreed to make a decision within 30 days.
