Three stores sold alcohol to underage decoys during a joint mission with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. In total, two enforcement teams visited 28 stores in unincorporated Washington County. On Friday, Nov. 3, the Washington County Sheriff's Office in partnership with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission conducted an underage alcohol compliance mission at stores in unincorporated Washington County. During the mission, underage decoys from the Sheriff's Office Explorer Post would enter businesses, select an alcoholic beverage, and proceed to the counter. If asked for identification, the decoy would present their valid Oregon driver's license. If asked their age, the decoys were instructed to be truthful.
The decoys were monitored by an undercover deputy while inside the businesses and a uniformed deputy staged outside. During the one day mission, two enforcement teams visited 28 stores throughout unincorporated Washington County. Of those visited, the following three stores sold to underage decoys: Cedar Hills Mart & Mail, located at 10170 S.W. Park Way; 7-Eleven, located at 17771 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway in Aloha; and 7-Eleven, located at 19175 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway in Aloha.The three clerks who sold alcohol to the underage people were cited for furnishing alcohol to minors.
