An undercover spot check resulted in two local retailers being issued $200 infractions for selling cigarettes to minors.
The spot check was performed by police detectives working last Friday with the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Prevention Service.
Infractions were issued to Euphoria Hookah Lounge, 1563 Black Rock Turnpike, and Wine Zone, 4180 Black Rock Turnpike.
State law prohibits the sale of cigarettes to people younger than 18 years old.
