— Five of 30 Tri-City businesses sold alcohol to minors during compliance checks conducted by the Washington State Liquor Control Board in June.

Tagaris Winery, 3 Eyed Fish, Bonefish Grill and Wingstop, all in south Richland, are accused of selling alcohol to minors. Albertsons in Kennewick also failed the test, according to the board.

The checks are conducted with individuals ages 18 to 20 who are sent into businesses by liquor enforcement officers.

The officers can issue administrative violation notices. Businesses may be fined or have their liquor licenses temporarily suspending, particularly if they are a repeat offender.
