ENID, Okla.-- It's a sting, that stung many restaurants in Enid, with 40 percent selling alcohol to an undercover minor.

A night on the town uncovers not one, but four reportedly non-compliant restaurants.

"It`s disappointing, our goal is not to cause a hardship to people in Garfield county," said Deputy Sheriff Daril Momsen, with the Garfield County Sheriff's Office. "Four out of the ten places sold to our underage volunteers."

The underage volunteers were reportedly sold alcohol at the following:

Buffalo Wild Wings

Emilio's

Cafe Garcia

Southern Twist

The Sheriff's office points out that the restaurant workers would be fine, had they simply asked for the minor's age.

"If they`re asked their actual age, they`ll tell their actual age," said Momsen. "If they ask for an ID, they present their actual ID to the clerk, the waitress, or the employee."

All findings have been turned over to the Garfield County DA's office, and the ABLE Commission.
