The state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission has ordered Home Market, 165 Belgrade Ave., in Roslindale, to close Aug. 2, 3 and 4 as punishment for letting a 17-year-old with a fake Maryland driver's license walk out with an 18-pack of Bud Light, a six-pack of Smirnoff Ice, a six-pack of Twisted Tea and a 25-oz. can of Natural Ice one afternoon this past January.
According to the commission's decision, a state investigator was stationed outside the market when the kid walked out around 3:55 p.m. on Jan,. 17 with the various beverages. The investigator found him to look suspiciously young for an alcohol purchaser and, under questioning, the youth admitted he was 17 and produced the bogus driver's license, the decision states.
The commission ordered another three days of suspension, but decided not to enforce that if the market stays out of trouble for the next two years.
