The Harford County Sheriff's Office cited three Fallston establishments for selling cigarettes to a 16-year-old volunteer during unannounced tobacco compliance checks at eight county businesses. The Tobacco Enforcement Manager at the Harford County Health Department conducted the tobacco compliance checks to determine whether merchants were complying with the Maryland Youth Access Law. The law states that it is illegal for anyone, including merchants, friends or parents to sell or distribute tobacco products to customers younger than 18. The Sheriff's Office said the three merchants who did not comply with the Maryland Youth Access Law and sold cigarettes to the underage volunteer were Acme Markets, 2315 Belair Road; a 7-Eleven at 2400 Pleasantville Road; and Bel Air Sunoco, 1515 Belair Road.
