McCoy’s Employee Cited for Selling Tobacco to a Minor

Kendall County Sheriff's police ran the first of three rounds of compliance testing on Nov. 25.

In the first round of tobacco compliance testing, one Montgomery business was found to be out of compliance.

On November 25th, 2013 the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office completed the first of three rounds of Tobacco Compliance Testing. All but one of the seven tobacco retailers in unincorporated Kendall County were in compliance with the Illinois tobacco laws.

The one violation occurred at McCoy’s Gas Station located in the 17000 block of Ridge Road in Minooka. An 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.
