In response to complaints about businesses selling alcohol and nicotine products to customers under the age of 21, the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement partners recently conducted an undercover operation that identified several violations at stores across Volusia County.

The enforcement operations occurred Jan. 21 and Feb. 9. In total, the underage operative was able to make 16 purchases of tobacco or nicotine vape products and 5 purchases of alcoholic beverages.

In October 2021, Florida implemented new legislation raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco and nicotine products from 18 to 21 years of age, the same as alcohol.

The violations are misdemeanors. Each of the 17 store locations where violations occurred are being shared with the Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco for administrative review. They are:
