Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio A convenience store is in trouble with the law. Police say workers there keep selling beer to underage kids.

Investigators say three different times in the past year, teens working for the cops went into the Texaco on Orchard Drive in Bountiful and bought beer. Now, the business could lose its liquor license.

"We do take it seriously, and we want our businesses to do the best they can," said Bountiful Police Chief Tom Ross.

Kids say it's easy to get beer. "Like, there are some kids that will go and get it for you because they know the people there. They don't really need a, what do you call it... an ID ... to get it," said Steve, a Bountiful High School sophomore. He says the word has made it around: If you want alcohol, you get it from Orchard Texaco.

The store's owner has not returned calls to KSL.
