Cigarette Penalties in NYC

What are the penalties for unlicensed cigarette vendors selling untaxed (likely imported) cigarettes in NYC?
Yesterday, outside of a Brooklyn bar, I spotted a man selling what looked like Ukrainian Camel cigarettes out of a trash bag for $5 a pop. What are the likely penalties this man would incur if caught? I haven't been able to find any relevant information for New York City laws on this subject.
