Posted: Updated:

There's an ongoing crackdown on underage vape sales in Suffolk County.

Police say a recent sting operation uncovered 32 violations at more than 130 vape shops throughout the county.

According to officials, many of them were selling e-cigarettes and tobacco products to people under 21 years old.

Following the investigation, the county is expanding its 'Vape-Out'  program into schools.

The goal is to keep e-cigarettes away from kids and off school grounds.
