  • Cigarettes confiscated over tax stamps

    Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (AP)

    More than $20,000 worth of cigarettes has been confiscated from an Oklahoma City convenience store after authorities found the packages lacked tax stamps.

    Detectives went to the Corner Market on the city’s northeast side and found more than 200 packs of cigarettes without tax stamps on them, which means the state had not received its normal $1.03 tax on each of the packs of cigarettes.
