Underage alcohol sales operation results in three being issued citations


        The Bossier City Police Department’s Vice United conducted an undercover operation Wednesday night, March 6, 2013 targeting illegal sales of alcohol to persons under the age of 21 at local businesses. 

         Five businesses were checked during the operation for compliance with state laws with the assistance of an underage operative who attempted to purchase alcohol at each of the businesses. Employees at three of those businesses were issued summonses for unlawful sales to person under the age of 21. Those cited were:

Stephen Beamer, age 23, employed at Petro U.S., 5412 Barksdale Boulevard.

Taher H. Ahmed, age 31, employed at Barksdale Food Mart, 3226 Barksdale Boulevard.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
