A Florida man will spend 30 months in prison for trying to sell counterfeit razorblades at Meijer Stores.
As part of his punishment, 56-year-old Jeffrey Steven Telsey also faces three years of probation and must pay $400,506.17 in restitution, as well as a $25,000 fine.
In January 2008, Homeland Security Investigations was notified that counterfeit Gillette Mach3 razor refills were being distributed through Meijer Stores. Homeland Security began buying up the counterfeit razorblades from Telsey, who operated JCA Enterprises. At the same time, Meijer Stores issued a company-wide recall for the counterfeit blades.
