The following is a release issued by the Kendall County Sheriff's Office:
On February 7th, 2013 the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office completed a second round of Tobacco Compliance Testing. All but one of the tobacco retailers in unincorporated Kendall County were in compliance with the Illinois tobacco laws.
One violation occurred at Last Chance Saloon located in the 100 block of South Church Street in Millington. An employee allegedly sold tobacco products to an undercover agent that was sent in by deputies. The employee was cited for unlawful sale of tobacco to a minor, a petty offense.
The compliance checks are performed to determine if local tobacco retailers are complying with state minimum-age tobacco laws which prohibit the sale of tobacco to persons under the age of 18. With the help from a grant awarded by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission’s “Kids Can’t Buy ‘Em Here” Tobacco Enforcement Program.
