A Windsor man is facing a number of charges after he was arrested last week for operating an unlicensed vape shop that was allegedly targeting minors.

On August 31, members of the West Hants District RCMP executed a search warrant on ‘The Half Pipe,’ located in the mall on Water Street. They arrested the store’s 19-year-old owner and seized nicotine and cannabis vaping products, a prohibited weapon, and cash.

The man was charged with a slew of offences, including unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of cannabis for the purpose of distribution, distributing vaping products, and selling or offering for sale flavoured tobacco.

He was released from custody on conditions and will appear in provincial court this December.
