Travelers Rest Police Dept. crime, alcohol enforcement reports (March 12 - March 19)

A Message from Police Chief Lance Crowe:

"The Travelers Rest Police Dept. would also like to express public gratitude to several local retailers for their efforts in reducing underage drinking in Travelers Rest. As a member agency of the Greenville County Alcohol Enforcement Team, Officer Jennifer Stuber sent an undercover operative into several retail establishments on March 9 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.

We are happy to report that 17 businesses out of 17 checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale. These businesses are Rite Aid, Molinas, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Dollar General, Sushi Yama, the Tasting Room, Whistle Stop, Sidewall Pizza, Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Copperhead Mountain Distillery, Rest Stop, Willis #2, Spinx, Bi-Lo, and Pizza House.  Please congratulate these businesses in their diligence in ensuring that our youth do not have easy access to alcohol in Travelers Rest."
