Two in Ten Businesses Fail Alcohol Compliance Checks in Leonardtown – Southern Maryland News Net

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Alcohol Enforcement Unit recently conducted a succession of alcohol compliance checks in St. Mary’s County at 10 Leonardtown businesses.

Eight of the companies were found to be compliant, while two companies did not ask a minor to identify themselves.

Covert compliance checks were conducted on April 22, 2022, using a minor caddy from the Sheriff’s Office, for the Leonardtown Luau event. The cadet was wearing personal clothing, carrying no personal identification, and entered the store or restaurant to order or retrieve a company alcoholic beverage for the purpose of making a minor purchase.

Of the 10 businesses visited, eight were found to be compliant with Maryland law and required identification of the underage caddie. Two businesses did not ask for any identification and the cadet was able to buy an alcoholic drink.

The Leonardtown businesses deemed compliant were Antoinette’s Garden; Olde Town Pub, social cafe and Speakeasy; Sweetbay Restaurant and Bar; The front porch; The Rex; Liquor Center and Breton Bay Fine Wines & Liquors.

The two Leonardtown businesses found to be in violation were Brudergarten and Slice House.

Reports of liquor offenses were forwarded to the St. Mary’s County Liquor Commission for review.
