A COVERT operation by a Knox welfare group has found a third of bottle shops they investigated selling alcohol to young people without checking for identification.
Representatives from Communities That Care Knox — a partnership of 25 organisations, including Knox Council, Victoria Police and Eastern Access Community Health — went undercover at 27 bottle shops across Knox during a month last year to check if they were selling alcohol to underage customers.
The check involved a legal-aged person who looked underage trying to buy alcohol, with an independent monitor present.
The exercise found a third of bottle shops sold alcohol without checking ID cards.
