This Week in Crime Lawful Behavior: Underage drinking sting goes horribly, horribly right

That awesome McLovin fake ID Reston teenagers drove all the way to Georgetown to get apparently will do them no good.

On Wednesday, January 14, officers of the Reston District Station’s Neighborhood Patrol Unit conducted business compliance checks at several locations in the Reston and Herndon areas of Fairfax County. This sting is part of the ongoing youth alcohol enforcement campaign which was conducted using a Fairfax County police cadet dressed in plain clothes attempting to purchase alcohol. The police cadet was instructed to enter the locations and attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages and then attempt payment.

Twenty-two locations were entered with no arrests made for illegal sale of alcohol to a minor The sting was conducted using one team consisting of two plain-clothed officers, two uniformed officers, and one cadet.
Five police officers? Don't they know there's a MAJOR CRIME WAVE going on?
