Four teen-age boys were charged with underage possession of alcohol Saturday after officers received a tip alleging that a Severna Park liquor store was selling alcohol to minors, county police said.
Police said officers from the Eastern District and tactical units were watching Cork'N Keg Liquors in the 500 block of Ritchie Highway when a young man bought a case of beer without being asked for identification. When officers found the young man, identified as Patrick Michael Lachapelle of the 100 block of Berrywood Drive, was 19, he was charged, police said.
The clerk and owner of the store were advised of the violations, police said, but another car with three young men inside pulled up moments later and two young men went in and bought two cases and a 12-pack of beer. All were also underage, police said.
Officers recovered Georgia and Arkansas licenses from the teens, who had Maryland driver's licenses that showed they were underage. Charged were Bryan John Chomicki, 19, of the 500 block of High Bank Road in Severna Park; Thomas Richard Waskom, 19, of the 400 block of Ben Oakes Drive in Severna Park; and Michael Leo Greening, 18, of the 9400 block of Fens Hollow in Laurel.
Police said the county liquor board was notified of the store's alleged violations.
