Solihull Shop Owner Prosecuted for Selling Vapes to Minors
Solihull council successfully prosecutes shop owner for selling e-cigarettes to minors, resulting in £1945 fine.

According to an announcement on the official website of the Soller City Council in the United Kingdom on August 29th, a drink shop owner has been successfully prosecuted by the council for selling e-cigarette products to minors.

 

In a recent operation conducted by officials from the Solihull Trading Standards, it was discovered that Michael's Beverage Store (164 Streetsbrook Road, B90 3PH) failed to carry out age-related checks and illegally sold "ELFBAR" to underage buyers.

 

According to the 2015 Nicotine Inhalation Product (Sales Age and Proxy Purchase) Regulations and the 2014 Children and Families Act, selling e-cigarette products to individuals below the age of 18 is considered a criminal offense.

 

The defendant failed to appear in Birmingham Magistrates Court on Friday, August 18, 2023, and the case was proceeded in their absence. They have been fined a total of £1945 (approximately 18,000 RMB) and are required to pay within 28 days.
