Two clerks were arrested for illegal sales of alcoholic beverages to persons younger than 21 on Superbowl Sunday, state police at Clarence said.
Aided by personnel from the State Liquor Authority, troopers checked on 12 stores in the towns of Wales, Marilla, Alden and Clarence.
Superbowl Sunday “is traditionally marked by increased alcohol consumption,” a state police statement said.
One arrest was made at Ron’s Gas-Rite on Broadway in Alden, where clerk Sandra Lukasczyak, 56, of Alden, was charged with prohibited sale to a person under 21. She was given a ticket to appear later in Alden Town Court.
The other arrest was made at Red Apple Kwik Fill on Main Street in Clarence, where Stacey Delano, 37, of Clarence, was given a ticket to appear in Clarence Town Court.
Investigators said no violations were observed at the other 10 stores and gas stations that they checked.
