(Logan-AP) -- If you're underage in northern Utah, and looking for cigarettes or beer, don't count on it.

A recent study by the Bear River Health Department and law enforcement agencies found that store clerks refused to sell beer to underage customers 86 percent of the time.

As for cigarettes, underage buyers were denied 95 percent of the time.

Agents made more than 400 visits to grocery and convenience stores in the operation. It was conducted in Cache, Box Elder and Rich counties from last July until this April.
