Stores wouldn't sell cigarettes to 14-year-old

Anne Arundel Police had this bit of good news to report.

Detectives sent a 14-year-old girl into a dozen gas stations and convenience stores on Tuesday to try and buy cigarettes. Not a single clerk handed over the smokes.

Police called the sting operation C.A.R.E. That stands for Cigarette Availability Retail Enforcement. Police said they had gotten complaints that the establishments had sold to minors. In Maryland, you have to be 18-years-old to buy cigarettes.

The stores inclued 7-Eleven convenience stores, a Rite Aid and several gas stations.
