Three local businesses were busted for selling alcohol to minors after a Riverhead police sting last Thursday, according to a statement from police.

Police said Freddy Collado, 51, of Freeport sold alcohol to a minor at the Stop and Go Mini Mart on West Main Street in Riverhead; Ana Flores, 20, of Flanders sold alcohol to a minor at the OK Petro station on East Main Street in Riverhead; and Gokhan Gunacar, 27, of Miller Place sold alcohol to a minor at the Superior Gas station on Main Road in Aquebogue.

All three suspects were charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, processed and released on appearance tickets. The three businesses were referred to the New York State Liquor Authority, police said.

• Hess Mart on Route 25A in Wading River
