Richmond Hill police checked bar cards for the first time last week.

According to RHPD Cpl. Susan Willis, the RHPD conducted its first Alcohol Beverage Card compliance check on Jan. 28 on city businesses that sell alcohol.

Employees from two gas stations and one liquor store were found to be in violation. It became mandatory for employees to carry the ABC cards as of Jan. 1, and 356 cards have been issued.

RHPD Chief Billy Reynolds and Capt. Mike Albritton both said they were pleased with the result of the first inspection and that the three businesses were given an opportunity to rectify the issue before any other actions were taken.

Indecent exposure

On Wednesday, Jan. 28, the RHPD got a call from a woman in Richmond Heights saying her neighbor was guilty of indecent exposure.
