2 Cited During Minor Shoulder Tap Operation

Redding Police did a series of underage alcohol stings Tuesday. It was a Shoulder Tap Operation, which involves having the underage person approach customers on their way in to stores and ask them to make a purchase, making clear to the target that it’s because of age. Between 11AM and 3PM 17 people were contacted by the minor decoys and 2 of them were cited for agreeing to make the purchase. The penalty is a minimum $1000 fine and 24 hours of community service.
