Undercover Cigarettes - NYC tapes illegal cig sales on reservation

New York City (AP)

New York City investigators secretly videotaped cigarette dealers on a Long Island Indian reservation illegally selling untaxed smokes for re-sale at city bodegas, officials said last week.

The sting operation - during which one seller says on tape “the less I know, the better” - is part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg ongoing fight to stop reservations from selling untaxed cigarettes that end up in New York City. He has long complained the practice cheats the city out of tax revenues.
