3 violations found during Bethel Police tobacco compliance inspections

The Bethel Police Department has carried out a tobacco compliance inspection at places that sell tobacco products or electronic cigarettes.  Three violations were found during the unannounced visits on Tuesday.  Smoke Haven, Citgo and Food Bag--all on Greenwood Avenue--were found to be noncompliant.  The offending clerks were issued a first time infraction of 300 dollars.  Bethel Police found 8 other establishments were in compliance with state laws concerning the sale of e-cigarette and tobacco products to people under the age of 21.  Retailers are required to inspect the photo ID of anyone who appears under the age of 30 before selling a tobacco product or e-cigarette.  Bethel Police partnered with the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services Tobacco Prevention and Enforcement Program for the checks.
