JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - State Police have referred three Western New York businesses to the Buffalo Office of the New York State Liquor Authority after alcohol purchases were made by underage operatives.

Police listed a number of local businesses and restaurants that complied with the law and refused serving the underage operatives.

Investigators say the following three businesses allowed alcohol purchases by underage operatives:

  1. 7-Eleven Store            Hazeltine Avenue, Jamestown
  2. Hartfield Bay Cafe        East Lake Road, Mayville
  3. French Creek Tavern    French Creek-Mina Road, Clymer

The businesses will be referred to the Buffalo Office of the New York State Liquor Authority.
