Four of 10 businesses failed to card for alcohol purchases during a compliance check by the Aurora Police Department's Special Operations Group on Tuesday, police said.
The department checked businesses across the city, and clerks at six of the stores asked for identification from an underage person attempting to buy alcohol, police said. The underage person was working with police and no purchase occurred, police said.
Those six businesses were BP Amoco, 2200 W. Galena Blvd.; Foremost Liquors, 133 W. Galena; Randall Liquors, 719 N. Lake St.; Armanetti's, 2681 E. New York St.; Sunshine Pantry, 2958 Ogden Ave.; and Jay's Unlimited Liquors, 2900 Ogden.
There were also four clerks who failed to ask for identification. They were at these businesses: Northgate Liquors, 874 N. Lake; York Liquors, 4300 E. New York; Angelina's, 2218 Ogden; and Liquor Lane, 2178 Ogden.
The clerks who illegally sold the alcohol were issued notices to appear in court.
