Two charged following underage drinking initiative


State police charged two people with one count each of prohibited sale of alcohol to a minor.

Troopers on May 29 charged Connie S. McCallister, 51, Rensselaer Falls, at McAllister’s Wine and Liquor, 213 Rensselaer St., Rensselaer Falls, and Sharon Gushlaw, 25, of Stockholm, at Gandy Dancer Bar, 49 Mechanic St., Norwood, each with one count of prohibited sale of alcohol under the age of 21.

The charges follow a May 29 underage drinking initiative at 22 retail stores and establishments in St. Lawrence County where troopers said an underage volunteer was sent into each business in an attempt to have the clerk or bartender sell or serve the minor alcohol.

Ms. McCallister was issued an appearance ticket for Canton Town Court.

Ms. Gushlaw is to appear in Potsdam Town Court.
