The Great Falls Police Department conducted an alcohol compliance check on Friday evening (April 20).

The GFPD says the compliance checks are designed to ensure that liquor license holders are working to prevent the sale of alcohol to people under the age of 21.

The GFPD says that 24 out of 29 businesses passed, resulting in an 82.7% success rate. This follows the previous compliance check in September 2017, which had a 94% success rate.

Here are the five businesses that did not pass:

  • Bar S Lounge and Supper Club, 5100 N. Star Blvd.
  • Town Pump of GF 1, 401 10th Ave. S.
  • Taco Treat of GF INC., 1700 3rd St. NW.
  • The Do Bar, 1800 3rd St. NW.
  • Big Mouth BBQ, 1720 10th Ave. S.

Police issued citations for unlawful sales/transfer to a person under 21 years of age to employees who sold alcohol to the underage buyers.

The press release says the buyers were volunteers between 18 and 19 years old, who each had a valid I.D. or driver’s license.
