Email News Alerts

A father of two young children was summarily fired last week during a liquor store compliance check that has left a bad taste with some Park Rapids businesses.


He wasn't the only one who lost his job.

Thirteen vendors were targeted in the sting operation Aug. 26 that sent a minor into each establishment to buy 3.2 beer.

"Seven of 13 failed," said Hubbard County Sheriff Frank Homer, whose department conducted the checks. "A little disappointing."
