Sniffer dog Milo, Solihull Trading Standards and West Midlands Police were out and about in the borough yesterday.
Milo did a great job and seemed to really enjoy helping us carry out inspections at a number of shops to make sure that illegal tobacco is not being secretly stashed to sell.
We found a small quantity of non duty paid cigarettes but we are glad to say that the majority of shops only had legitimate goods. However, we will continue to keep our eyes and ears open for any hint of illegal merchandise being sold in Solihull!
If you have any information about illegal tobacco or alcohol being sold in the borough you can call us confidentially on 03454 04 05 06.
