A series of minor alcohol stings was done in Redding on Friday. Funded by a state grant, Redding Police watched as an underage decoy approached ten different people on their way into stores and asked if they would buy alcohol for the minor. 8 of them said no but a 21-year-old Red Bluff man and a 47-year-old Redding man were cited after buying beer for the teenager. The team also did the other kind of alcohol sting, sending the minor into stores to make purchases. 15 businesses were visited and one of them reportedly sold alcohol to the minor. It was the AM/PM on Railroad Avenue at Buenaventura. The clerk was given a citation.
