Alcohol violation brings fine

March 28, 2007|By Larry Carson | Larry Carson,Sun Reporter

The owner of a Columbia burrito restaurant was fined $500 for allowing a 19-year old police "volunteer" to be served beer.

Howard County police Detective Martin Johnson sent a police cadet and a volunteer into Frisco Burritos, in the 8865 Stanford Blvd., on Nov. 9.

The volunteer was served a beer without any request for identification. While speaking with licensee Adam Carton, Johnson told the county Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board, he also saw a man repeatedly walk outside the restaurant carrying a beer -- another rule infraction -- and found a 20-year old woman patron with an alcoholic drink.

The board's order was signed March 23.
