LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Six tobacco and convenience store clerks have pleaded guilty to selling a product used to falsify a drug test.

The American Press (http://bit.ly/1uDYXab ) reports that Judge Mike Canaday sentenced them to pay a $250 fine, plus court costs, and serve six months’ probation.

The clerks pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor Tuesday in state district court.

The purchases were part of a larger investigation into smoke shops in Lake Charles and Moss Bluff. Prosecutor Brett Gaspard says the undercover agents who bought masking agents made it clear they wanted to pass drug tests.

Most of the owners said they did not know selling the products was illegal.
