Crystal River police issued misdemeanor citations to two store clerks this weekend during a sting that targeted the sale of alcohol to minors.
Cited were Kokilaben Patel, 42, at the BP station at 809 N Citrus Ave. and Setera Lockley, 19, at the Texaco Food Mart at 770 NE Fifth St. Police say those clerks sold alcohol to an underage informant.
Both are scheduled to appear in county court on July 13.
