RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Members of the Regional Street Enforcement Team (SET) conducted an underage alcohol compliance operation during Saturday night's downtown Superhero Crawl.

An 18, 19, and two 20 year old volunteers, whose costumes had no affect on their identity, attempted to purchase alcohol at 20 different participating Superhero Crawl venues. In addition to the Superhero Crawl venues, 7 non-participating establishments were also checked. The minor was served alcohol at 3 of those locations, two of which were Superhero Crawl participating establishments. In each instance, the volunteers provided their actual state issued identification if they were askedfor it.

In addition to the alcohol compliance check, SET detectives verified employees possessed an alcohol awareness training card, required by state law. All of the employees checked were in possession of the alcohol awareness training card.

Uniformed officers were also included in this operation to enforce underage alcohol laws in the downtown area. These officers also educated and enforced laws regarding open containers between venues for adults.
