Two arrested on suspicion of buying alcohol for underage decoys

Two store customers were arrested on suspicion of buying booze for underage decoys working with law enforcement in Encinitas, Solana Beach and Del Mar, sheriff’s officials said.

The sting operation was conducted in North County from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday with deputies, state Alcoholic Beverage Control agents and two decoys under age 21.

The decoys were posted in front of various stores and asked six customers to buy alcohol for them. Three of the six did so, and were arrested, sheriff’s deputy Karla Taft said.

She said one of the three also was arrested on suspicion of possessing a small amount of marijuana.
