CVS released the following statement " We would like to put the whole thing behind us and move on"
JUNE 29--A Florida man is under investigation for repeatedly returning boxes of used enemas to a CVS pharmacy where workers re-shelved the items, cops report.
The unidentified suspect, who has not yet been charged in a product tampering probe being led by the federal Food and Drug Administration, was arrested earlier this month on an unrelated outstanding warrant. He is currently locked up.
The repulsive probe began earlier this month when a worker told Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office deputies that the suspect, on four occasions, had purchased ready-to-use saline enemas only to later return the items.
The CVS employee, Dustin McDonald, said that when returning enemas on June 5, “the suspect told him that it was for the suspect’s mother and she no longer needed them,”
After accepting the enemas for return, the 22-year-old McDonald decided to “check the box of enemas to be sure that they were not tampered with.” When he opened the box, McDonald “observed that all the enemas were used.” Additionally, the pharmacy worker determined that “the unknown white male… re-glued the bottom of the box so that it appeared that it had not been opened.”
McDonald then checked three other six-pack enema boxes on the store’s shelves and found that “all the enemas in each of the 3 boxes were previously used.” As with the first box he examined, McDonald discovered that the three other boxes had been opened from the bottom and re-glued shut.
