ODESSA - One Odessa business in trouble for selling tobacco to minors.

Last week, the Odessa Police Department conducted a tobacco sting targeting 69 stores in the City and the County, and only one sold tobacco to a minor.

The clerk at the Eskimo Hut on West County Road was ticketed and will have to appear in Municipal Court.

Authorities may look at this sting as an improvement in complaince, since operations in the past have netted many more offenders.
