A convenience-store sting set up by the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office led to five arrests on New Year Eve, each with suspects believed to have sold alcohol to people under the legal age of 21.

Chambers County Sheriff Sid Lockhart received numerous complaints of convenience stores selling alcohol to people under the age limit, the office reported, and he directed deputies to investigate the complaints.

The Sheriff’s Office initiated “Operation New Year’s Resolution” about 7 p.m. Tuesday, with deputies visiting nine stores.

The operation led to the arrests of five store clerks after they sold alcohol to a Sheriff’s Office employee who was under the age of 21, the office said in a news statement.
