An undercover sting ended with employees at four popular restaurants all being arrested for selling alcohol to a minor.

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) agents fanned out across Hidalgo County hitting at least 15 businesses on Thursday.

TABC agents arrested 27-year-old Carolina Jackson at Mr. Fast Sushi Restaurant off North 10th Street and Nolana Avenue in McAllen.

Agents arrested also 40-year-old Cinemark Bistro employee Nancy Silva but the arrests did not end there.

The agents also arrested 20-year-old Laura Martinez at the neighboring Buffalo Wings & Rings.

TABC agents also arrested 29-year-old Rachel Kakkanad at the Mesquite Grill BBQ in the same shopping center.

Investigators told Action 4 News that Jackson did not even ask the undercover teen for his identification.

Silva, Martinez and Kakkanad are accused of looking at the teen's identification but still selling him a beer.
