Special hearings are being proposed to decide whether Montgomery County, Maryland, should get out of the booze business after a News4 I-Team uncovered problems of alleged theft and drinking on the job inside a county liquor agency.
The Department of Liquor Control handles all alcohol sales in Montgomery County, and multiple sources told the I-Team some county employees have been stealing beer they're supposed to be delivering and selling it on the side.
The I-Team also found delivery crews pouring what appears to be alcohol into cups and driving government vehicles.
Council member Hans Reimer is proposing a special committee review how the department operates and whether the county should continue to sell alcohol.
Hearings could start in January.
