The ALDI supermarket at Edgecliff, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs will be banned from selling alcohol for three days this week after police caught boys under 18 with beer they’d bought from the store.
The minor told police he was asked to produce identification by a supermarket cashier but told him that he’d lost his wallet.
The juvenile used a fake driver’s licence on his mobile phone using a superimposed image of himself to convince the cashier he was over 18.
The cashier subsequently told police he was unaware scanned IDs were not legal in NSW.
In the wake of the incident the employer has trained staff to check the IDs of anyone who appears to be under 25.
