A citywide sting operation conducted by the State Liquor Authority reveals that Brooklyn alcohol purveyors are pretty loose with the I.D. checks, with 94% of bodegas that were probed ending up selling booze to undercover minors during the April 17 to May 1 investigation.

Of the 74 establishments visited by underage SLA minions, 32 took the bait. Decoys visited 16 Brooklyn outlets, and successfully purchased booze in all but one. Busts were made at one of 15 Bronx stores, five out of 21 Manhattan stores, eight out of 16 Queens stores and three out of six Staten Island stores.

Investigators will continue the sweeps through September, and will hit more than 1,000 businesses before it's through. Those who complete underage sales face penalties up to $10,000 per violation, with fines starting at $2,500 for first time offenders.

“The law is the law, and we will continue do whatever it takes to crack down on underage drinking and hold accountable those who serve alcohol to minors," Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. "Our message is simple: If you put children at risk by placing alcohol in their hands, you will face the consequences.”
