A 19-year-old male student was arrested on Friday after attempting to buy alcohol using a fake ID at Modern Liquors on East Delaware Avenue, Bryda said. Newark officers were implementing the “Cops in Shops” program, where plainclothes officers work at liquor stores checking for proper identification, he said. The student entered the store at about 6:30 p.m. and officers asked to see his identification, Bryda said. When the suspect presented his ID, Bryda said officers determined it was of poor quality. They discovered it was fake and obtained the suspect’s real information, he said. The suspect was charged with possession of fake identification and entering and remaining in a liquor store, according to Bryda.
