Somerset County Underage Alcohol Compliance Checks

Somerset County, Maryland- On Monday December 31 2018, Troopers from the Maryland State Police Princess Anne Barrack conducted numerous covert alcohol compliance checks at local alcohol dispensing establishments within Somerset County. During the operation the assigned Troopers ensured that the various retail establishments which hold a Somerset County Liquor License were denying sales of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21 years old. The Barrack X civilian intern, was utilized during this operation, and when requested provided a vertical Maryland Driver’s License, which clearly stated below the age of 21.

A total of 14 retail establishments were checked. Most were found to be in compliance with underage alcohol sales however, two establishments were not. The “Kings Creek Market” of Princess Anne and “Spike’s Pub & Subs” of Princess Anne failed to appropriately check identification and served alcohol to the underage intern. Each of the below retail establishments that were subject to an alcohol compliance check, complied with the provisions of the law and denied the sale of alcoholic beverage to minors:

  • Eden Quick Stop, Eden Maryland
  • Juniors Wine Stop and Shop, Princess Anne Maryland
  • Dash Inn, Westover, Maryland
  • Goose Creek, Westover, Maryland
  • Marion Station Market, Marion Station Maryland
  • Brew Thru, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Shore Stop, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Crisfield Oceanic, Crisfield, Maryland
  • Kash and Karry, Princess Anne, Maryland
  • Lucky’s Store, Deal Island, Maryland
  • Washington INN, Princess Anne, Maryland
  • Crisfield Shore Stop, Crisfield, Maryland

In an effort to keep minors safe before, during and after the New Year’s Eve Holiday Weekend, Troopers will continue to conduct thorough and unannounced compliance checks to ensure that alcoholic beverages stay out of minor’s possession.  The New Year’s Eve Holiday sees a dramatic uptick in underage consumption and purchase of alcohol. With that the State of Maryland shows an increase in alcohol related collisions, many of these collisions involve serious bodily injury.

The alcohol compliance checks were made possible by funding provided by an in partnership with the Somerset County Local Management Board.

  1. Why should minors be prohibited from purchasing alcohol? I did it all the time and I am still fine. Minors can purchase weed, coke, even heroin so what’s the big deal?

    1. Those who are 18-20 can sell alcohol, so long as there is someone 21 and older on premise who works there. This is a nationwide law and one that c-stores and restaurants have to follow or lose their license. If they serve the alcohol to someone underage, they and the owner/worker who is of legal age are guilty of the infraction.

  5. If the cops really wanted some alcohol related arrests all they have to do is pull over Wicomico county trucks and check em out. While they’re at it they could frisk Pee Wee and they will find out he is still stealing no matter how many restrictions they put on him. He was over here at the civic center the other day rooting in the dumpster for something he could take back to Sharptown while on the taxpayers dime.

  6. Every time Pee Wee comes over here he is sifting through stuff. He has swiped enough stuff to buy the entire town of Sharptown. He says the stuff is junk, but he seems to be making a pretty good side hussle. More supervision of this fool is definitely in order. One day, the MIdway Room will be missing.

  7. JT, I work maintenance at the Civic Center and have to agree with the comments above. This nut Pee Wee was over here recently looking for a part for a welder (he was supposed to be working on our equipment). I asked him why he didn’t go buy one. He said he needed it for his welder at home and was hoping he could find one here. I guess when county workers need parts for personal equipment they just help themselves to county property. I told him if he finds his welder plug he could start looking for the missing tables and chairs.

  8. I know a couple of county supervisors who wouldn’t do a thing if they caught an employee stealing. These guys are in constant denial. If they are told a worker is drunk, they say nope. If you tell em an employee is high, they say nope. If you tell em an employee is stealing, guess what they say. The supervisors are just as guilty as the employees. When a sports team doesn’t perform properly they fire the manager. Culver should consider doing the same.

  9. In my dept if you tell a supervisor whats going on right under their noses your yearly evaluation score goes down. Wanna know why? BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT A TEAM PLAYER. If you are a team player you are supposed to look the other way and be quiet. Culver has a real problem with a couple dept heads and their assistants. I am not joking, taxpayers are being raked over the coals. When Mike Lewis gets wind of this there is gonna be trouble.

  10. 301 is correct, I work in a similar environment. If this blog didn’t exist, more tables, chairs ,and curtains would be missing. The boys over at rec and parks would still be eating pot cookies and getting all sloshed up before starting work. Then they come over here to county roads to get fuel and talk about how their bosses really don’t care as long as they can stay out of view from the public. There is a big stupid game being played and the rec and parks boys are definitely winning.

  11. Whenever Pee Wee comes over here to the Civic Center he tells us that him and his parks buddies are encouraged to hide through the winter months. As long as the public doesn’t see what is going on all is good. We have one hell of an operation going on.

  12. Pee Wee told me that with spring time coming up he was getting ready to buy some new toro and hustler parts and he will have used parts available for sale. County supervisors should keep their ears to the ground, unless they are also in on the heist.

  13. Every time slippery fingers pee wee comes over here he runs his mouth about how his bosses are incompetent and how he hates em. However, whenever he sees a supervisor from the Civic Center or Owens Branch he gives em the ole Hey Buddy bullshit. He only runs em down when they are out of earshot. It gets old listening to this crap.

  14. Pee Wee is a good ole county worker who says he doesn’t get paid enough so he’s taking matters into his own slippery hands. He has a heater in his pool in Sharptown made out of parts he has stolen from the county. He comes across as a dumbass but he has outsmarted his bosses for quite a while now. Stay tuned.
