Six stores accused of selling alcohol to minors

Here's one way to tell it's spring break season.

Largo police accused six of 10 businesses of selling alcohol to an underage person during a small sting Thursday night.

They worked with a minor to simulate incoming spring break revelers. The person tried buying alcohol mostly from bars and convenience stores. The businesses that police said attempted sales were:

• Wing House Bar & Grill, 7369 Ulmerton Road

• Circle K, 14111 Belcher Road

• PK's Food Store, 3200 East Bay Drive

• Hess station, 2930 East Bay Drive

• Banana Boat Too, 5858 Roosevelt Blvd.

• The PlayPen, 5858 Roosevelt Blvd.

The salesperson at each business was given a misdemeanor notice to appear.

The four businesses that refused the sale were:

• Wild Willy's Bar and Nightclub, 13355 Belcher Road

• 7-Eleven, 13355 Belcher Road

• Rainbow Food Mart, 2575 East Bay Drive

• 7-Eleven, 5860 Roosevelt Blvd.

Police plan to take more action to prevent underage alcohol sales as spring breakers flood the area, said spokesman Michael Loux.

Public can have say at Largo budget meeting

Largo will host a community budget meeting from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday at Largo Public Library, 120 Central Park Drive. This will be an open forum for the public to provide input, voice concerns and offer suggestions for city services and budget priorities.

City staffers will present potential budget scenarios and service reductions for the next fiscal year.
