Sioux Falls police say a compliance check of 21 off-sale liquor businesses Wednesday night turned up one violation.

Detectives say the business making the sale to a person under the age of 21 was the Gas Stop at 3312 South Western Avenue.

The clerk who made the sale was cited for furnishing alcohol to a person 18-20 years old, and will be required to make a court appearance.
Businesses making sales to underage persons may face fines, suspensions, or loss of their liquor or malt beverage licenses.
Police say such compliance checks will continue.
