Eyewitness News investigated an east Bakersfield convenience store after a viewer called the tipline and claimed the store was selling cigarettes that are not supposed to be sold in the United States.

Eyewitness News sent an undercover crew to the Central Cali Market on East California Avenue to buy a banned pack of cigarettes, which happen to be Newports. It turns out, the market does have the real packs on display, but when the crew bought a pack the seller grabbed one from under the counter.

After buying the banned pack, Eyewitness News took them to another cigarette seller who easily spotted the “fake” and explained how to tell the difference.
