Minor decoys snare local restaurants
On June 2, with assistance from the Hillsboro Police Department and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, Forest Grove police conducted undercover minor decoy missions at local stores, bars and restaurants.
Five establishments sold alcohol to minor decoys. They were: The Kings Head, McMenamins Grand Lodge, Godfathers Pizza, Mandarin Chinese Restaurant and Mama Jiahs Market.
The following establishments refused alcohol purchases and were found in compliance: Tienda La Rosa, Phils 1500 Subs, Tysons Pub NGrub, Rainbow Lanes, Urban Decanter, 7-11, Forest Grove Senior Center, La Sierra Cantina, Circle Inn Tavern, FG Tobacco, Bull Run Cider, Momokawa Sake, My Place Tavern, Forest Theater, Bites Restaurant, Jade Green Palace and Prime Time Sports Bar.
This mission was part of an ongoing collaborative effort to enforce laws related to the unlawful furnishing of alcohol to minors and to discourage underage drinking. More multi-agency operations are planned.
