Four Burlingame Businesses Caught Selling Alcohol to Minors

In a decoy operation that took place last week, four businesses in Burlingame, including Mollie Stone's grocery store, were caught selling alcohol to minors.

Four Burlingame businesses, including grocery store Mollie Stone's, were among 17 businesses in northern San Mateo County that sold alcohol to minors in a decoy sting operation last week.

Minors working with law enforcement officials went into liquor stores and restaurants in San Bruno, Colma, Daly City, Pacifica, South San Francisco and Brisbane and attempted to buy alcohol. In each business where alcohol was sold to the minor, the employee faces criminal prosecution, and the business could be fined or have its license to sell alcohol revoked by the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Other Burlingame businesses caught were Lucky's, Young's Liquor and R&M Broadway 76.

Three businesses in San Bruno furnished alcohol to minors: Walgreens, Hooter's and Speedy Spot convenience store, according to police.

Chipotle restaurant and Sizzler, both in Colma, were also caught in the decoy operation.

In Daly City, six businesses were caught: Hard Hat's Bistro, The Jug Shop, New Daly City Market, Plaza Liquor and Deli, Verona Coffee Market, and DC Liquor and Deli.

In South San Francisco, J&J Market and Jailhouse Liquor and Deli were caught.
