Seven businesses in Brisbane and Daly City sold alcohol to persons under the age of 21 during a minor decoy operation on Saturday, Pacifica police said.
The Consumption of Alcohol Suppression Team, or 21 COAST, Task Force sent minor decoys into 31 establishments licensed by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control in Brisbane, Broadmoor, Colma and Daly City.
Employees at seven of the businesses served alcohol to the underage decoys, police said. Those employees were arrested and could be criminally charged, and the businesses where they work face administrative penalties, police said.
The businesses that served the alcohol in Daly City were the Quick Pick Market, Brazilian Market, Thai Power Restaurant, and Vallarta Night Club, police said.
In Brisbane, the alcohol was sold at Julie's Liquor and Deli, the 23 Club, and the Brisbane Inn, according to police.
Police said seven customers were also arrested for purchasing alcoholic beverages for minor decoys.
