Hogansburg man arrested for untaxed cigarettes

PEMBROKE – A 43-year-old Hogansburg man was arrested for allegedly trafficking in untaxed cigarettes after a routine traffic stop by Genesee County sheriff deputies here Thursday.

Ian Richard Eli Tarbell Sr. was pulled over in the 8400 block of Alleghany Road for allegedly changing lanes unsafely and failing to keep right. During the investigation he was found to be transporting 4800 cartons of untaxed cigarettes and possibly in violation of federal parole in an unrelated case.

He was remanded to the Genesee County Jail in Batavia in lieu of $100,000 bail by Pembroke Town Justice David M. O’Connor. A federal probation detainer has also been lodged against him.
