Police Sweep St. Charles Bars, Stores for Liquor License Compliance

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.

Two 19-year-old people helped police conduct the liquor-license compliance checks for these businesses:

  • Alley 64, 212 W. Main St. 
  • The Beehive, 204 W. Main St. 
  • Binny’s Beverage Depot, 1950 Lincoln Hwy. 
  • Chord on Blues 106 S. First Ave. 
  • Dawn’s Beach Hut, 8 N. Third St. 
  • East Side Pub & Grill, 2400 E. Main St. 
  • Filling Station, 300 W. Main St.
  • J & S World Liquors, 311 N. 2nd St. 
  • Liquor ‘N’ Wine, 2460 W. Main St.
  • Los Burritos Mexicanos, 2125 W. Main St.
  • Lundeen’s Liquors, 137 S. 16th St.
  • Magoo’s, 312 W. Main St.
  • The Office, 201 E. Main St. 
  • On the Border, 3050 E. Main St. 
  • One Stop Liquors, 1401 Prairie St. 
  • Ray’s Evergreen, 1400 W. Main St. 
  • Rookie’s Pub, 1545 W. Main St. 
  • Second Street Bar & Grill, 221 S. 2nd St. 
  • St. Charles Bowl, 2520 W. Main St.
  • Thirsty Fox, 104 E. Main St. 
  • Wal-Mart, 150 Smith Rd. 

According to police, none of the businesses sold alcohol to the two underage “agents.”

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,  shut down after its license was suspended following three violations—the most recent one where a woman was allegedly over-served.

What a waste of time. Of course, STC cops don't have much else to do.
