Suspects Accused Of Underage Beer Sales Appear In Court

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two convenience store owners, accused of selling alcohol to minors appeared in a Davidson County Court.

Amen Naguib and Wael Timothwaes appeared in court Tuesday. They were accused of selling beer to minors at their Stop and Shop Tobacco and Beer Market on White Bridge Road.

The suspects agreed to an injunction stating their market is a public nuisance. Officials said the store will be allowed to reopen but they can't sell any alcohol for 90 days.

"It would always be a concern that it could happen again but all the police department is asking for is compliance, once the 90 days is up they will be allowed to say but compliance with the law will be the goal," said Captain Mike Alexander, with the Metro Nashville Police Department.

The store was padlocked Monday after police said they learned the owners had been illegally selling beer to local high school students.

Police seized $12,000 of beer from the store, all of which was destroyed.
