Restraining Order Against Cigarette Sellers

Several Cattaraugus County companies have been ordered by a federal judge to stop shipping or receiving unstamped cigarettes.

The judge’s order follows Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s announcement last week that her office is suing Phillip Jimerson, Heidi Jimerson, Wendy Boon and William Achord for selling contraband cigarettes through online businesses set up to avoid paying state cigarette taxes.

They had been selling the cigarettes through Allegany Sales and Marketing, Cloud and Company, Native and several other companies.

The Temporary Restraining Order will remain in effect until trial.
