FULTON COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Three businesses have been issued citations who were reportedly selling alcohol to minors.

"It's just crucial that you check the IDs. We're trying to do everything in our power to keep underage kids from being able to obtain alcohol and they're just another tool in that fight" said chief of Wauseon police Keith Torbet.

The Wauseon police department hosts training sessions about safe alcohol sales. They're free and designed for clerks or festival workers.
