Sting Operation Nets Five Arrests

Nov 2, 2015

It was a relatively uneventful Halloween weekend in Unalaska.

According to charging documents, five men were arrested separately Saturday night for buying alcohol for a minor under 21. In what the Unalaska Police department calls a “shoulder tap” operation, police enlisted a decoy to stand outside one of the two liquor stores in town and ask shoppers to buy them alcohol.
