Three Wayland businesses were nabbed selling cigarettes to a minor Tuesday during undercover cigarette compliance checks conducted by the Wayland Police Department, police said.

On Feb. 25, Wayland police sent a 17-year-old into local establishments that sell tobacco products with instructions to attempt to purchase cigarettes without showing any identification.

Three of the 14 establishments checked sold cigarettes to the underage youth; Donelan’s Supermarket, 177 Commonwealth Road, Sunoco gas station, 19 Main St. and Gulf gas station, 28 Boston Post Road.

These establishments will be referred to the Board of Health for follow up. 

The Wayland Police Department regularly conducts both alcohol and cigarette compliance checks at local businesses in an effort to reduce the underage consumption of alcohol and tobacco products.

I don't in any way condone Donelan's selling the cigarettes, but it's kind of a shame because they are so diligent in making sure they don't sell alcohol to minors. I'm over 70, a frequent customer with a Wayland address, and they still check for my Mass driver's license. Too bad they had a lapse in this case. RH
