Avon Police made one arrest in an underage sales sting of
eight stores Sept. 27.
A clerk at Circle K was charged with underage sales and will have to appear in Avon Mayor’s Court.
“We haven’t done one of these in awhile,” Avon Police Lt. Keith Haag said. “With some of our growing pains, it was put on a back burner.”
Haag said an 18-year-old female, working with the police department, attempted to purchase alcohol at eight Avon establishments. The seven other stores were compliant.
“Obviously, we prefer 100 percent compliance but one out of eight isn’t bad,” Haag said. “The last time we did this there was a lot more.”
Jonathan Cline, 25, of Avon Lake was charged with one count of underage sales.
“We would like to thank the stores that do what they’re supposed to,” Haag said.
