Police said they jailed a 38-year-old man Thursday caught selling alcohol to a minor in a College Station convenience store during an April sting.
The Bryan man was jailed on a charge of sale of alcohol to a minor and released the same day on $5,000 bail.
A Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agent and Brazos Valley Regional Alcohol Task Force officer were performing a sting on April 2, during which an 18-year-old woman was attempting to purchase alcoholic beverages from various stores, according to a police report.
The teen approached the check-out counter with a can of malt liquor at the Exxon Express Mart at 425 South Texas Ave., and the clerk sold it to her without asking for identification, according to the report.
Officers said they issued the clerk a TABC citation. He was advised a warrant would be issued, and he could turn himself in at the Precinct 2 constable's office, the report states.
The charge is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine up to $4,000.
