Corrigan Sting Operation Catches Convenience Stores Selling Alcohol to Minors, CORRIGAN, October 28, 2013 - On October 26, 2013, Corrigan Police Chief, Darrell Gibson, and his officers conducted a sting operation in an effort to catch local convenience stores within the Corrigan City Limits selling alcohol and tobacco to minors. The department had been getting a large volume of complaints from locals in reference to underage drinking and their sources. With the use of an informant (a minor), Corrigan Police did in fact nail establishments for selling cigarettes and alcohol to their informant. Both establishments (Polk Pick It Up, and Charlie's) were issued citations by Corrigan Police Department. "We want to increase our community awareness so that our kids cannot gain access to alcohol and tobacco", Chief Gibson said.
