Smoke shop hit with bogus check scam

TAHLEQUAH — An employee of a local smoke shop reported receiving bad checks recently.

A woman reportedly used three different checks, totaling more than $1,300, to purchase cigarettes at Briggs Tobacco Outlet. Employees said the checks were bad, and they haven’t been able to contact the woman.
