Redding Police and State Alcohol Control Agents did some underage alcohol stings on Friday. They did both kinds of minor alcohol sting operations, targeting retailers as well as customers. The underage buyer went into eleven different stores trying to buy alcoholic drinks, but was only successful at two of them. Daljit Gill was cited at the Shell Station at the south end of Bechelli Lane and just across the freeway Genaro Larusso was cited at the Chevron Station on Churn Creek Road. The other type of sting is the shoulder tap operation, where customers about to go into stores are approached by the decoy and asked if they’ll make a booze purchase for them. Nine people were asked and three fell for it: William Bradbury, Robert Schornsten and Joshua Pugh. The operations were funded by a state grant.
