(ABC 6 News) - According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, nine businesses were caught selling alcohol to people under the age of 21. 

According to a press release, the compliance checks were conducted over Labor Day weekend. Out of 30 businesses, nine failed to properly check or ask for identification for underage customers after they ordered an alcoholic beverage.

"From what I've seen in my years here, that is a little high," Capt. Behrns said. "But we have to remember that 21 businesses did good, and the ones that did have failures, they will make corrections and it probably won't happen again."

The failures included four businesses in Byron, two in Stewartville and one in Eyota, Dover and Marion Township. 

"I know it's difficult, and people are in a hurry, but take the time to check people's IDs. It's worth the time," Capt. Behrns said. 

None of the clerks or bartenders have been arrested. 

These cases have been turned over to the Olmsted County Attorney's Office for review.
