NEW YORK (WHEC) -- The state will continue to crack down on fake IDs and underage drinking at concerts and bars this summer as part of their Operation Prevent campaign.
And as part of their ongoing effort to prevent underage drinking, investigators from the DMV, State Liquor Authority, State Parks Police and local law enforcement will conduct sweeps at various venues across the state.
"When alcohol finds its way into the hands of young people, far too often it ends in tragedy," Gov. Cuomo said. "Through this ongoing enforcement effort, investigators from across the state are working together to combat this dangerous and chronic problem."
In April and May, 139 tickets were issued throughout the state, 126 fake IDs were seized, and 186 businesses were charged with selling alcohol to minors.
Read below for a full list of locations across the state where tickets were issued:
Capital Region - 56 tickets
Central New York -14 tickets
Finger Lakes - 31 tickets
Southern Tier - 20 tickets
Western New York - 18 tickets
