LONGVIEW — Longview police put some local retailers in the spotlight for complying with the law. During an undercover sting in January, the Longview Police Department partnered with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to put local businesses to the test. KETK and the Longview News-Journal report 12 businesses failed by allegedly allowing undercover minors to purchase alcohol. However, of the 64 businesses that were checked, police say 52 passed the test and did not provide alcohol to the underage individuals. On Wednesday, Longview Police handed out awards to those businesses for their compliance. The accompanying photo above is of Longview Police giving the award to EZ Mart on the 1200 block of McCann Road.
