Oklahoma raids two tribal smokeshops
Authorities in Oklahoma raided smokeshops owned by two tribes on Wednesday.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission claims the shops owned by the Alabama Quassarte Tribal Town and the Kialegee Tribal Town were selling cigarettes without proper tax stamps. The state also says the brands are not approved for sale in Oklahoma.

A spokesperson for the commission said the smokeshops were not on trust or restricted fee land. Neither tribe has a tobacco compact with the state.
