BRIGHTON, AL (WBRC) - State officials have removed alcohol from a convenience store in Brighton.

Alcohol Beverage Control agents were conducting inspections when they entered My Store at 4500 Bessemer Superhighway.

Agents say half the store was a package store and the other half is a convenience store. The owners closed the package store and moved the liquor into the convenience store.

The liquor was seized because the business had no license to sell liquor from a convenience store. Their tequila, whiskey, vodka, and 18-year-old scotch will be destroyed once the case is resolved.

It is legal for the store to sell beer. It now faces administrative fines for selling the liquor.
