FAIRFIELD, CT — An employee of the Rose Smoke and Vape Shop in Fairfield was arrested Monday, after police said he illegally sold marijuana and nicotine products to underage customers.

Ali Mohamed, 20, of the Bronx, New York, was charged with the following:

  • Possession with Intent to Sell Marijuana
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Sale of Marijuana (2 counts)

According to Fairfield police, over the past several months, the department had received numerous complaints that minors had been buying the products from the Black Rock Turnpike store, which prompted an investigation led by the department’s Detective Bureau Quality of Life Unit.
