Board of License Commissioners

December 2, 2003

The Honorable Board of License Commissioners met today with the following present: Roy W. Crow, Scott D. Livie, and William W. Pickrum, presiding.

Mauritz Stetson, Alcoholic Beverage Inspector, was also in attendance.

VIOLATION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE LAWS

Mauritz Stetson, Alcoholic Beverage Inspector, appeared to advise the Commissioners of a violation to Article 27, Section 400 of the Annotated Code of Maryland (Criminal Code 10-114) as it relates to the misrepresentation of age by a minor to induce the sale of an alcoholic beverage. This case was closed by issuing a citation and arrest (refer to citation # 2733505649) . The violation occurred at C-Town Liquors.

Mr. Stetson also noted the cooperation he received from the attending employee at C-Town Liquors who made Mr. Stetson aware of this suspicious alcohol-related purchase by a minor who, when asked, presented a fake New Jersey driver's license. Mr. Stetson noted that the C-Town Liquor employee's report to him was as per the training for employees given in the Alcohol Awareness Classes.


TOBACCO LAW ENFORCEMENT

Mr. Stetson also reported on his efforts in enforcing laws governing the sale of tobacco products. He indicated that he sent letters to the 41 establishments licensed in the County to sell tobacco products, advising them of the laws pertaining to the location of displays of said products (i.e. that they should be removed from the front area of the store to the rear of the store). Mr. Stetson conveyed the cooperation and compliance of all the licensed owners.

Mr. Stetson also advised that a video has been produced from a State grant to the County Health Department and will be issued and presented to County police officers and tobacco retailers in order to increase their awareness of current tobacco laws.


There being no further business to claim their attention, the Board adjourned to meet again on Tuesday, December 9, 2003.
