JANESVILLE, Wis. (WMTV) - Employees at more than a dozen Rock Co. businesses across four cities are accused of selling alcohol to underage individuals over the weekend as the Sheriff’s Office conducted compliance checks across the county.

The Sheriff’s Office released a list of the 13 businesses which were cited for allegedly violating liquor laws, noting that they all received several citations. Each of the clerks accused of selling to the underage individuals were also given a $452.50 one.

The statement announcing the busts pointed out that every location listed below was given advanced, written notice that a random check was coming. Members of the Sheriff’s Office will assigned to the store to ensure each of them know the risks of selling alcohol to minors.

Sheriff Troy Knudson complimented the six businesses that “stayed vigilant and complied with liquor laws.” However, with that half dozen add to the 13 that were cited, that means more than 2/3 allegedly did not comply.
