Cops in Iowa City caught four downtown bars serving underage customers in a sting operation this week that targeted 36 local businesses that sell alcohol.

According to the Gazette, the businesses that sold booze to the minors were the Airliner (22 S. Clinton St.) the Sports Column, (12 S. Dubuque St.) Studio 13, (13 S. Linn St.) and Gabe’s (330 E. Washington St.)

The trouble could cost the employees who were caught selling to minors fines of up to $500. There could also be more civil action taken against the bar owners and license holders.
