HOMER GLEN – The Illinois Liquor Control Commission has cited a Homer Glen restaurant, alleging it sold alcohol to an underage customer working undercover with the agency.
The commission reported in a news release that Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant, 14853 S. Founders Crossing in Homer Glen, made the sale during a July 15 check by the state commission and the Will County Sheriff.
The agencies conducted underage alcohol compliance checks at 15 locations in Homer Glen that day. Throughout July, the agency visited 342 Illinois businesses that sell liquor, citing 47 for liquor control law violations, according to the news release.
The compliance checks run by the Liquor Control Commission are an ongoing cooperative program with local law enforcement agencies and high school and college volunteers. Teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars to check for compliance with state law.
No liquor is to be sold to anyone under the age of 21.
