 Operation Pop Top Results 


In an effort to combat the illegal sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors, on Thursday, February 5, 2015, PCSO School Resource deputies, along with the help of Polk County Explorers, checked 10 stores in the North Lakeland area.

All ten stores checked were in compliance with the law:

1. Quick Mart - 3510 Cleveland Heights Blvd, Lakeland

2. BP - 3501 Cleveland Heights Blvd, Lakeland

3. Sunoco - 1605 Edgewood Drive, Lakeland

4. 7-Eleven - 2010 Edgewood Drive, Lakeland

5. 7-Eleven - 3070 US Hwy 98 South, Lakeland

6. Circle K - 1705 US Hwy 98 South, Lakeland

7. BP - 4225 Lakeland Hills Blvd, Lakeland

8. Exxon - 4653 Socrum Loop Rd, Lakeland

9. Sunoco - 6655 Socrum Loop Rd, Lakeland

10. Hess Mart - 111 Marcum Rd, Lakeland

"We appreciate the clerks at these stores and the businesses themselves for helping us ensure the safety of Polk County's children. It only takes a second to ask for and check identification when someone is purchasing alcohol and tobacco - those who take that second to check are the difference between getting arrested, or not." - Sheriff Grady Judd
