ROSCOE, Ill. — All tobacco retailers in Roscoe, Ill., were inspected for the third of three rounds of compliance checks May 30.

A total of 12 tobacco retailers were inspected, and none was found to be in violation of the law by selling tobacco to a minor.

The compliance checks are performed to determine if local tobacco retailers are complying with state minimum-age tobacco laws that prohibit the sale of tobacco to people younger than 18.

With the help from a grant awarded by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission’s “Kids Can’t Buy ’Em Here” Tobacco Enforcement Program, the Roscoe Police Department educates local tobacco retailers about minimum-age tobacco laws and the importance of verifying the age of customers before selling age-restrictive products, such as tobacco.
