HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Two Hazelwood businesses received some tough penalties after being caught selling alcohol to minors.
The Hazelwood Police Department said H&H Corner Convenience Store on Howdershell Road had its liquor license revoked for one year. And Tony Roma’s Restaurant at the St. Louis Outlet Mall can’t sell alcohol for 45 days.
Hazelwood Police said the businesses were caught selling three times in the past year.
“We actually have minors while they’re being recorded by police officers, plain clothes police officers going to establishments around the city,” said Hazelwood Police Chief Gregg Hall, “They go in and attempt to purchase liquor and it occurred, on each of three instances.”
Hazelwood Police said it is unusual for liquor licenses to be suspended or revoked.
Police also said the undercover stings continue all year.
