(LEX 18) — Two Tennessee brothers accused of buying medical supplies with the intent to sell them at higher prices learn their punishment.
The Tennessee Attorney General's office learned in mid-March about an alleged price gougin scheme involving emergency and medical supplies by Matthew Colvin and Noah Colvin.
The two are accused of traveling along I-75 in Tennessee and Kentucky, buying 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, masks, thermometers and Clorox wipes.
Once officials contacted the Colvins, they gave all of their supplies to a Tennessee non-profit.
Some supplies were also distributed in Kentucky.
As punishment, the Colvins are prohibited from selling emergency supplies or medical supplies at a higher price.
