NORWALK — Norwalk law enforcement officials conducted a decoy operation targeting local convenience stores that sell alcohol to underage customers but found no violators.

The sting was held June 18 in a joint operation by the city of Norwalk and Norwalk Sheriff’s Station.

Minors, working under the direct supervision of officers, visited six retail locations in Norwalk and attempted to purchase alcohol.

In all six attempts, the decoys were unsuccessful.

Stores that sell alcohol to minors face a minimum fine of $250, plus 24-32 hours of community service for a first violation.
