A Brantford man faces Tobacco Tax Act charges following a seizure by police.

On Wednesday, Feb. 15 at approximately 12:50 p.m., an officer stopped a vehicle on Sheridan Street. While speaking with the driver, the officer saw packages in the back of the vehicle.

The officer had reason to believe the packages contained illegal cigarettes. A search revealed the packages contained approximately 150 cartons of unmarked cigarettes.

He was released on a provincial summons to attend court on March 29.
