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.
