Court hearing in Stillaguamish tobacco case
Four members of the Stillaguamish Tribe of Washington are due to appear in court tomorrow on charges they sold untaxed cigarettes.

Former chairman Edward Goodridge, Sr., his wife, their son and a relative are accused of making at least $55 million on untaxed cigarettes sales. Their family's Blue Stilly Smoke Shop was raided in May by federal agents as part of a statewide sting.

The four are charged with conspiracy to traffic in contraband cigarettes and engaging in monetary transactions involving property derived from unlawful activity.
