Briefs: 2 cited in Marysville for giving alcohol to minors
Two people were cited Thursday for buying alcohol for minors during Marysville Police Department sting operation.
Charles Everett Travis, 63, of Browns Valley, was cited for furnishing an alcoholic beverage to a minor, then arrested for drunken driving with an open container, police said in a statement.
Bernice Morris, 32, of Marysville, was cited and released in the 100 block of East 12th Street for furnishing alcohol to a minor.
The citations were part of the department's ongoing Shoulder Tap and Minor Decoy stings, which target those who purchase alcohol for minors and those who sell directly to them.
Providing alcohol to anyone under 21 years old is a misdemeanor offense punishable with steep fines and possible jail time and community service, police said.
Decoys do not try to trick adults, lie about their age or use fake identification.
