Chino Hills police cited three clerks for selling cigarettes to underage decoys during an enforcement operation May 30 in the city.

Clerks at Descanso Market, 4283 Descanso Ave. in the Los Serranos area of the city; Master Tobacco at 4200 Chino Hills Parkway; and Party House Liquor at 4060 Chino Hills Parkway were cited and released, said Sgt. David Frayeh. 

Court dates are pending, he added.  

Officers from the Chino Hills Police Department visited 10 businesses in Chino Hills between 5 and 9 p.m. to ensure employees were following tobacco related laws by not selling cigarettes and other tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21, the sergeant said.
