DEMING, NM — Minors assisting law enforcement in compliance operations, such as that undertaken Friday night when citations were issued to three Deming establishments and two Deming men were arrested, are recruited for those operations.
Sgt. Lee Mullen, of the Special Investigation Division of the Department of Public safety, said Monday none of the minors who work with law enforcement to check compliance with state liquor laws are under age 18.
