LONE TREE, Colo. — The Target in Lone Tree had its liquor license suspended for one day after an employee was caught selling liquor to a minor.

A police spokeswoman said the city does regular liquor compliance checks in which an officer accompanies a underage person who tries to buy liquor.

An employee at the store near S. Yosemite Street and Lincoln Avenue was caught in a compliance check, said city spokeswoman Kristen Knoll.

The violation required the city to deny Target a license for Thursday. The store can resume selling liquor at midnight.
