These 3 Learned Cigarettes Can Lead to More Than Cancer
HUDSON — An attempt to buy more than $100 worth of cigarettes led to the arrest of three New York residents.
On Thursday at 10:50 p.m., police responded to Cumberland Farms, at 189 Central St., for a report of credit card fraud.
An employee told police two people made a couple of small purchases with a credit card and then attempted to purchase over $100 in cigarettes with the same credit card.
The employee requested identification for the transaction while noticing discrepancies with the identification and credit card. The clerk canceled the transaction and called the police.
Police tracked the suspects down in a silver Volkswagen Jetta with a Connecticut registration.
The two people inside the store were identified as Justin Foe, 22 of New York, and Taylon Hill, 19 of Westbury, New York. Three other people were in the vehicle along with Foe and Hill.
