Cigarette/Tobacco Crackdown in Hartford

During the month of August, detectives with the Hartford Police Department’s Vice and Narcotics Unit, using a grant from the Tobacco Master Settlement Health and Trust Fund, through the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, conducted unannounced compliance inspections of establishments that sell tobacco products. The inspections were performed in an effort to determine compliance with state laws concerning prohibition of the sale of cigarettes and/or tobacco products to youth under the age of eighteen. A total of 181 unannounced compliance inspections were conducted. Of this, a total of fifty (50) establishments were found to be in violation of the General Statutes of Connecticut, Sec. 53-344(b), Sale of tobacco to minors under eighteen. The offending clerks were issued a first time infraction of $200.00.
