Sheriff's deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Perris Station arrested four people after those four people agreed to purchase alcohol for the underage decoys during a sting operation, a Sheriff's official said.

The sting, known as a "shoulder tap operation" to members of the department, was aimed at reducing the availability of alcohol to individuals under the age of 21, according to Sheriff's Sgt. Ken Zuncker.

alcohol when approached by them were:

--Francisco Valencia, 39, of Menifee

--Miguel Carranza, 20, of Inglewood

--Cynthia Romero, 21, of Perris

--Marco Jimenez, 22, of Lynwood

Those individuals were eventually issued citations for furnishing alcohol to minors, Zunker said.

The operation was funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

People with questions about this operation and future operations are encouraged to contact Deputy Bridgette Recksiek at the Perris Police Department at 951-210-1000.
