Sutter County Sheriff's Department Conducts Alcohol Sting

Tuesday, February 24, 2004 9:30 AM

For Immediate Release:

Sutter County Sheriff’s Deputies, assisted by underage Sheriff's Cadets conducted a series of decoy operations in which Sheriff's Cadets attempted to purchase alcohol from both on-sale and off-sale establishments within Sutter County.

The operation resulted in the arrests of two adults on charges of sale/furnishing a minor with alcohol. The adults were identified as: Nakeya Lee Shetrawski, 25, of Yuba City, a clerk at the AM/PM-1332 Bogue Road, Yuba City. The second adult was identified as Michael Lee Cramer, 36, of Sutter, a bartender for Zodiac Bar and Grill, 1939 Acacia Avenue, Sutter.

Five additional establishments were also contacted during the operation, where the clerk(s) refused to sell alcohol to the cadet. These local businesses should be commended for their adherence to the law. The Sutter County Sheriff’s Department continues in its efforts to take to task those that would provide alcohol to minors. The Sheriff’s Department is committed to the goal of eliminating alcohol being provided to minors through both enforcement actions such as the decoy stings and shoulder tap programs, as well as through education of business owners and their staff when requested. If business owners are interested in any training or information concerning on/off sales of alcohol, they can contact Captain Paul Parker at (530) 822-7307.

Those businesses that refused to provide alcohol were identified as:
