TROY - The state Taxation and Finance department said Friday that it seized untaxed cigarettes from two Troy stores.
The Stop and Shop at 67 Middleburgh St. and Harry's Grocery at 1 Northern Dr. were also guilty of other violations, the state said, leading to the forced closure of both stores by the city's code department.
The state agency said inspectors found a total of nearly five cartons of untaxed cigarettes and other "contraband" in the stores, and each had their license to sell tobacco products suspended.
