Brantford police have snuffed out a shipment of black market cigarettes.
While on patrol yesterday (Wednesday) an officer made a traffic stop on Sheridan street and noticed packages in the rear of the vehicle.
The officer was suspicious they might be illegal cigarettes and it turned out those suspicions were well-founded.
150 cartons of smokes were seized.
A 55 year old Brantford man was charged with possession of unmarked cigarettes for sale and possession under the tobacco act.
