Travelers Rest Police Dept. crime, alcohol enforcement reports (July 21 - July 31)

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 July 10 to attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages. We are happy to report that six businesses out of six checked the operative’s ID and refused to complete the sale. Those businesses are Walmart, CVS, Willis ABC, Exxon, Spinx, and Bi-Lo.

On the same day, another operative attempted to purchase tobacco products and was denied the sale at four businesses out of four.  These businesses are Murphy USA, Walgreens, Dollar General, Rest Stop.  

Please congratulate these businesses for their diligence in ensuring that our youth do not have easy access to alcohol and/or tobacco in Travelers Rest."
