RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Employees at three Riverton businesses have been cited after they were accused of selling tobacco to a minor.

The employees were subjects of a sting operation conducted by the Riverton Police Department at 15 area stores last month. Officials recruited a 16-year-old boy to purchase the tobacco and the youth told the clerks he did not have identification with him.

According to the Riverton Ranger (https://tinyurl.com/l3b3let), the teenager was paid $10 for each attempt to purchase tobacco. The money came from the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police.
