The Licensing Commission, made up of the Board of Selectmen, agreed to dismiss without action a liquor license violation against the owner of McAloon's Liquors, citing that it was the establishment's first violation in 11 years, said commission chairwoman Rosemary Connelly Smedile. The store's owner, Bill Buco, had a hearing before the commission on July 16 to address an incident where liquor was sold to an under-age North Andover resident using a fake out-of-state identification card. To rectify the problem, Buco told selectmen that he purchased a $4,000 state-of-the-art identification card reader to be able to better detect sophisticated fake IDs. In response to the incident, Smedile said she will be sending letters to all liquor license holders in town warning them that older ID scanners may not be keeping up with more sophisticated fakes, and that out-of-state IDs are not an acceptable form of identification. Anyone who chooses to accept out-of-state identification for the sale of liquor does so at their own peril, Smedile said.
