Woodstock business fails tobacco check

WOODSTOCK – On Tuesday, tobacco retailers were inspected for the first of three planned rounds of compliance checks to be conducted this year in Woodstock.

A total of 26 tobacco retailers were inspected, and one sold tobacco to a minor.

That establishment was Citgo Gas, 830 Lake Ave., according to a news release from the Woodstock Police Department.

The employee who sold the tobacco product to the minor was issued a city citation and must appear April 11 at an administrative hearing at City Hall.

Compliance checks are performed by the Woodstock Police Department with assistance from the McHenry County Health Department.

With the help from a grant awarded by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission’s “Kids Can’t Buy ’Em Here” Tobacco Enforcement Program, the city educates local tobacco retailers on minimum-age tobacco laws.
