Responding to community complaints, Sag Harbor Village police conducted an investigation into reports of alcoholic beverages being sold to minors at the Gulf Gas Station convenience store on Hampton Street. On Friday night, officers said they saw Ali S. Bulbul, 26, of Shirley sell a 12-pack of Bud Light, a six-pack of Corona, and a six-pack of White Claw Hard Seltzer to two teenage girls, ages 16 and 17, around 9:10 p.m.
Mr. Bulbul was arrested and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of unlawfully dealing with a child in the first degree, all misdemeanors, and prohibited sale to a minor, a violation under the New York State Alcoholic Beverage Control Law. He was released on $250 bail with a court date for Jan. 17, 2020.
The girls, who were not charged, were released into the custody of their parents.
Chief Austin J. McGuire said in a statement, “The Sag Harbor Village Police will continue to be proactive, alongside the community, to ensure the health and safety of our youth.”
