A detective from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff Station’s J-Team cited a vaping store clerk Tuesday for allegedly selling tobacco products to underage customers.
In the process, the detective also arrested a woman with outstanding warrants.
Here’s more of the story from the station’s social media, which did not identify the store or the clerk:
“After numerous concerns were relayed to SCV Sheriff’s Station regarding vape/cigar businesses allegedly selling tobacco products to youth, the J-Team arranged to conduct a special enforcement operation on Tuesday, July 21.
“During the operation, an employee at one of the stores was charged by deputies for furnishing tobacco to a minor. The employee was cited and released in the field.
“During the vaping store operation, the J-Team also made contact with a female adult who was arrested after they discovered she had $50,000 in warrants.
“Thanks for giving us tips to help us keep SCV safe and our youth safe.
