Police raid Croton smoke shop during drug bust

Posted: Updated:

One person is under arrest in connection with illegal drug sales at a smoke shop in Croton-on-Hudson.

Police say they conducted a three-week undercover operation at Smoke, Tobacco and Cigars on Maple Avenue after getting a tip.

News 12 is told an investigator posing as a customer bought the drugs.  "If we find out about something being sold illegally, like we did in this instance, then we will take the appropriate action conducting an investigation following with an arrest," says Croton-on-Hudson Police Chief Russel H. Harper.

Police would not disclose what they recovered during the search.

The store has been open for less than a year.
