Amir Miljkovic sentenced for contraband cigarette scheme
GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - The owner of a Prince George's County auto glass store has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for his role in a plot to traffic contraband cigarettes across state lines, and a second conspirator will spend a year and a half in prison.
Prestige Auto Glass owner Amir Miljkovic and conspirator Chun Chen, both of Bowie, were sentenced in federal court in Greenbelt on Monday.
Prosecutors say Miljkovic and a county police officer, Richard Delabrer, purchased untaxed cigarettes from an undercover agent and then sold them to Chen, the owner of a carryout store in Maryland.
All told, prosecutors say Miljkovic and his co-conspirators paid an undercover agent nearly $1.8 million for more than 17 million contraband cigarettes. Delabrer and another co-conspirator are awaiting sentencing.
