Officers reported contacting the various businesses between noon and 4 p.m. to determine which, if any, would sell tobacco products to minors, according to the Fairfield Police Department. All of the businesses were reported to be in compliance with the "Stop Tobacco Access to Kids" enforcement act, which mandates proper display of tobacco sales information in businesses that sell tobacco products. Only three actually sold tobacco to police decoys.
The businesses that did so were an AM PM store at 3001 Travis Blvd., The Cigarette Store at 1652 N. Texas St., and a Valero gas station at 2595 N. Texas St.
The sting was funded by an Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs grant, according to police.
