Tantus Tobacco, LLC Pays $750,000 in Contraband Case

Tantus Tobacco, LLC paid $750,000 after pleading guilty to conspiring to engage in contraband-cigarette trafficking, according to U.S. Attorney David J. Hale in Louisville. Tantus admitted that in 2008, it sold cigarettes to Charles Wells, a distributor in Hopkinsville, but helped create false documentation that it had sold the cigarettes to Jerry Burke, a wholesaler in Tupelo, Miss. That allowed Tantus to avoid paying into an escrow account that was required under the 1990s settlement of state lawsuits against cigarette makers. The payment from Tantus consisted of $200,000 to Kentucky; $60,000 to the office of Attorney Jack Conway; and $490,000 to the federal government.
