A Mamaroneck Avenue bodega popular with suburban teens has been busted for allegedly selling beer to underage customers. And it’s not the first time.
Mamaroneck Village cops arrested the 34 year-old night clerk at the Mamaroneck Variety store near Columbus Park July 5th after a carload of local of 16 and 17-year-old teens left the store with the forbidden beverages in the back seat at about 10:30 pm.
The charges are “Unlawful Dealing with a Child,” and “selling alcohol to a minor.” Village Police tell us this is only the latest in a series of incidents involving the store and beer sales to minors. The matter has been referred to the New York State Liqour Authority for further investigation.
