Brooklyn Men Had Untaxed Smokes on 219

Two men were picked up on Route 219 in the Town of Carrollton Wednesday after being found with nearly 500 cartons of untaxed cigarettes.

Sheriff’s deputies say 21-year-old Muad Almontaser and 19-year-old Gehad Almontaser, both of Brooklyn, New York, were transporting 490 cartons of untaxed cigarettes from Virginia to New York. The tax value on the cigarettes is more than $21,000.

The men were each charged with criminal taxation fraud and were sent to Cattaraugus County Jail on $10,000 bail each.
