Police charged two people with providing alcohol to a minor during an underage sting over the weekend, police said.
One of the arrests was a store patron who offered to buy drinks for a female after he saw a store clerk refuse to sell alcohol to her, police said.
Joel R. Norton, 45, of Warrensburg, was arrested after he approached the underage woman and volunteered to purchase alcohol for her after a clerk at the Exit 23 Citgo station in Lake George refused to sell to her, according to the Warren County Sheriff's Office.
He was charged with prohibited sale of alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor, police said.
The store was one of eight establishments the Sheriff's Office and state Liquor Authority visited Sunday to see if the underage woman could purchase alcohol.
Lynnette M. Post, of Corinth, was charged with prohibited sale of alcohol to a minor after she allegedly sold to a minor at CB Spirits in Warrensburg, the Sheriff's Office said.
Both Norton and Post were released pending prosecution.
Officers also visited Super Kmart, Walmart on Quaker Ridge Road in Queensbury, Stewarts on Quaker Road in Queensbury, Hess Mart on Quaker Road in Queensbury, Star Fuels on Upper Glen Street in Queensbury and Duffy's Tavern in Lake George; the underage volunteer was denied sales at these businesses.
