There were 107 establishments checked with the assistance of the State of Kansas Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control (ABC). Of the 107 establishments that were checked, 13 were cited for selling alcohol to underage individuals.

“Each buyer (decoy) had their real Kansas DL or Kansas Id card with them.
