Local, state police raid smoke shop chain’s Penn Yan and Watkins Glen stores

Local and state police raided a smoke shop in Penn Yan on Thursday, March 10.

The Penn Yan Police Department Chief Tom Durham said his officers assisted New York State police in executing a search warrant at Fat Daddy’s Smoke and Gift Shop, according to Finger Lakes Times. Police confiscated cash and marijuana from the 259 Lake St. business.

State police also carried out a search warrant at Fat Daddy’s Watkins Glen location. The business has been referred to by local outlets as a “marijuana sticker shop,” or a place where people can buy stickers and be gifted marijuana, thereby taking advantage of a supposed loophole in state law.
