Eastbourne shopkeeper caught with counterfeit cigarettes

Sniffer dogs from Welsh company B.W.Y Canine Ltd helped to catch a shopkeeper from Eastbourne found with illegal cigarettes.

Salar Abdolla was caught out after Trading Standards officers, accompanied by specialist tobacco dogs, inspected his shop, Zagros Fresh Food Market, in Seaside Road. The dogs sniffed out illegal and counterfeit cigarettes, concealed in a compartment in a wall at the front of the shop and in a cupboard at the rear. Abdolla, of Tanbridge Road, Eastbourne, admitted three charges of possessing counterfeit cigarettes and an additional 10 charges of possessing tobacco products without the required health warning.
