Springfield Bars Caught Serving Alcohol to Minors
The results of a weekend sting by Illinois State Police show several Springfield bars selling alcohol to minors.
The Alcohol Countermeasure Enforcement Program, or ACE, visited 13 locations in Springfield Saturday evening. The report said three bars served alcohol to a minor: Mowie's Cue on Toronto Road, Firehouse Tavern on East Monroe, and Boondocks Tavern on North Dirksen Parkway.
Employees who served a minor at those locations were charged with unlawful delivery of alcohol to a minor.
