Local police are advising residents of a cigarette scam that has  

been occurring in this area. Individuals have been approached about  

purchasing cigarettes for $10 a carton.

    Perpetrators of the scam ask for the money up front, but do not  

return with cigarettes. Anyone who is approached about buying  

cigarettes should contact the Monticello Police Department.

    Any information, like a license tag or a vehicle description, would  

also be appreciated.
