An anonymous tip led police to bust an employee at a Northern Westchester smoke shop for selling concentrated cannabis in vape pens, according to Croton-on-Hudson Police.

Mohammad Noffal, 22, of Yonkers, was arrested and Tuesday around 6:30 p.m., at the Smoke, Tobacco, and Cigars at 50 Maple St., Croton-on-Hudson police said.

The department began investigating the store, with help from the Westchester Heroin and Opiate Task Force for about three weeks after receiving an anonymous tip that a store employee was selling vape pen cartridges with concentrated cannabis, the department said.

Following the investigation, officers, along with members from the state Department of Taxation and Finance, searched the store and arrested Noffal, they added.

Noffal was charged with three counts of felony criminal sale of a controlled substance and four counts of felony criminal possession of a controlled substance. 

He was released on $3,500 bail.
