A couple of store clerks were cited for selling alcohol to a minor decoy as Redding Police conducted a sting on Friday. With help from the State Alcohol Beverage Control, a minor working with police was sent into retail stores attempting to make purchases without an I.D. The operation was done on Friday. The purchases were successful at the Chevron on Hilltop at Presidio and the CVS on East Cypress. The two clerks were cited and face fines and community service. Police did not say how many stores passed the test by refusing to sell.
