CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Thousands of dollars’ worth of beer was seized from a store where employees had allegedly been selling alcohol to minors.

On Thursday, agents seized the entire inventory of beer at the store during the execution of an alcohol search warrant. Officials said the retail value of the seized alcohol was estimated to be more than $35,000.

The citation was for violations dating back to May 2014.

Officials said criminal charges were pending.
