A check of 21 stores found none that served or sold liquor to underage "agents."
A police sweep of 21 St. Charles businesses found none had violated their liquor licenses and served underage adults.

The St. Charles Police Department does a random check every quarter of businesses within the city limits that maintain a liquor license, according to police. Sometimes, more than one check is performed if a particular establishment receives complaints.
In April, Scotland Yard shut down after its license was suspended following three violations—the most recent one where a woman was allegedly over-served.
