The Douglas Sheriff’s Office says four stores have been implicated in an investigation into alcohol sales to minors.

In a news release, the agency said it had received several tips about local businesses selling to minors, and in response, sent informants to 23 different locations during the past year.

Four stores allegedly sold alcohol to “persons under-21 working with the Sheriff’s Office,” the release said. The clerks who sold the alcohol were charged.

The stores were:

Cross Road County Store, 1480 Highway 61, Villa Rica

Corn Crib Store, 7826 Village Entrance Drive, Douglasville

Fairmart Store, 7703 Highway 78, Winston

Marathon Station, 3757 Kings Highway, Douglasville

The sheriff’s office says it will continue the operation throughout the year.
