Employees of Four Mamaroneck Village Establishments Arrested for Selling Beer to Minors

Employees of four Mamaroneck Village establishments were arrested on Tuesday night, July 17, for the unlawful sale of alcoholic beverages, a Class A misdemeanor.

According to Village of Mamaroneck Police Lt. James Gaffney, the arrests, for selling beer to minors, were made at 5:48 p.m. at the Internatinal deli at 130 Mamaroneck Ave., near the Boston Post Road; at 6:33 p.m. at Lulo Grocery at 657 Mamaroneck Ave., near the corner of Sheldrake Place; at 7:20 p.m. at KB Mart at 624 East Boston Post Road; and at 9:56 p.m. at Mi Cabanita bar at 501 Halstead Ave., at the corner of Melbourne Avenue.

The investigation of various Mamaroneck Village establishments was a joint operation of the VOM Police Department, the Westchester County Department of Public Safety and the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. The arrested employees were taken to Mamaroneck Village police headquarters, where they were booked and issued court appearance tickets.

A report, Gaffney said, will be sent to the New York State Liquor Authority, which can act against businesses that sell alcohol but do not comply with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law.

Detectives Bernie McNally and Edgar Prieto represented the Mamaroneck Police Department in the investigation and arrests.
