Ronald Eugene Robinson, of Jacksonville, Fla., was indicted on federal charges of tampering with a consumer product.

A cheeky CVS customer is accused of a sickening scam in which he allegedly purchased boxes of enemas, used them and returned them sealed — leaving the polluted product to be resold to unsuspecting shoppers, federal prosecutors say.

Ronald Eugene Robinson, 34, of Jackonsville, Fla., is facing federal charges of tampering with consumer products, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday.

Enema brands sold at CVS.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigation found that he allegedly began returning the used enemas in April to a Jacksonville CVS pharmacy. He may have brought back as many as 12 enemas on multiple occassions.

A sheriff’s office report identified a CVS employee in June who said a customer had been returning the enemas to the store. He believed the packaging had been tampered with.

When he checked the boxes, he found “that all the enemas were used” and that “the unknown white male … re-glued the bottom of the box so that it appeared that it had not been opened,” reported thesmokinggun.com.

The CVS drugstore at 9509 San Jose Blvd. in Jacksonville, Fla., has removed enemas from a shelf and instructed customers who bought them recently to phone a number.

He had already been arrested June 15 on an out-of-county warrant, and has a rap sheet that includes burglary and writing bad checks, The Smoking Gun said.

Investigators reportedly identified him through a credit card and the tag number of his car.

Discovery of deadly fish in lake ‘that eats male genitals’

A popular Illinois lake is on guard after the discovery in its waters of the exotic pacu fish – infamous for killing men by ripping off their testicles.

Families reported being wary of entering the waters of Lake Lou Yaeger after hearing that a pacu was caught by a fisherman on June 7 and that another one had been spotted two weeks later.

Known in Papua New Guinea as ‘The Ball Cutter’, the pacu has reportedly been responsible for the deaths of two fishermen in the Pacific nation, who died from blood loss after the fish had bitten off their testicles.

Initially thought to be a piranha, the fish caught in June was later confirmed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to be a pacu.

Although part of the same family, the pacu has thicker, sturdier teeth that resemble human ones, unlike the piranha, which is renowned for its deadly serrated incisors.

‘I just got told about it and I am freaked,’ said mother-of-four Deanne Kirkwood to KDSK in Illinois.

‘And now, I am not so sure I want to go in.’

The pacu that are living now in Lake Lou Yaeger were most likely dumped there illegally, but the local authorities were keen to dispel any fears.

‘It is a little scary seeing a fish with teeth,’ said lake superintendent Jim Cadwell.

‘They are not native to this lake or this area.

‘The pacu, they are in the same family as piranha’s, they are related, but piranha’s have very jagged teeth, but pacu’s have teeth very similar to humans.

‘Their main diet is nuts, leaves, aquatic vegetation, snails.

‘If their food supply is limited they will eat other fish.’

Families have become slightly wary of stepping into the water after the confirmation there are pacu roaming the lakeFamilies have become slightly wary of stepping into the water after the confirmation there are pacu roaming the lake

Last year, one intrepid British angler reported of a trip he undertook to Papua New Guinea to catch pacu, known locally as ‘The Ball Cutter’.

Fifty-three-year old Jeremy Wade hunted for the legendary pacu after hearing reports of the fish killing local fishermen by castration.

The Ball Cutter boasts an impressive set of man-like molars, which tear off the testicles of unwitting hunters, leaving them to bleed to death.

‘I had heard of a couple of fishermen in Papua New Guinea who had been castrated by something in the water,’ said Wade on his British television program ‘River Monsters’.

‘The bleeding was so severe that they died. The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen. They didn’t know what it was.

‘Amazingly, these things are quite elusive so we had to be patient catching one. We put a line into the water and waited for it to bite.

‘When I reeled it in, it had this mouth which was surprisingly human-like, it is almost like they have teeth specially made for crushing.

Like the piranha, the pacu is originally from the Brazilian Amazon and was introduced into Papua New Guinea to increase fishing stocks.

Despite causing some worry in Illinois, most visitors to Lake Lou Yaeger were nonplussed.

‘We have been in shark infested waters and till I see it with my own eyes it ain’t going to bother me,’ said lake-goer Keith Nessl.

Man holds air conditioner repairman at gunpoint

Stan Nguyen was unhappy with the job his air conditioner repairman did on the unit at his residence, so Nguyen decided to hold the worker at gunpoint until the job was done right, sheriff’s officials said this morning.

But the repairman — unharmed — was able to call for help at about 9 p.m. Friday, said Volusia County sheriff’s spokesman Brandon Haught.

Repairman Sean Hickman  had gone to Nguyen’s house at the 2300 block of Statler Terrace on Friday to repair the unit, a report shows. When Hickman began explaining the unit’s problem to Nguyen, the homeowner became angry and refused to pay Hickman, the report shows.

Nguyen, 54, claimed Hickman ruined the unit, the report shows.

Hickman said he attempted to give Nguyen an invoice for the work; on the 9-1-1 call made by Hickman, the repairman also told Nguyen that he would be hearing from his attorney.

At that point, Nguyen pulled out a gun and pointed it at the ground, attempting to fire the weapon, the report shows. The safety was on the weapon though and it did not fire.

But then Nguyen removed the safety and that’s when Hickman took cover behind his van. Hickman called for help and said Nguyen was pointing the gun in his direction and threatening to shoot him if he tried to leave, the report says.

A few minutes before Hickman telephoned for help, Nguyen’s son Stephen Nguyen, called 9-1-1, saying the repairman had “fried” the air conditioner and was refusing to leave their residence.

Nguyen was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.’

Doctor pulls live 13 cm worm out of 75-year-old man’s eye

A man from India, P K Krishnamurthy, 75, felt his right eye twitching and even hurting at times over the course of two weeks. On Wednesday, doctors discovered the cause and removed a 13-cm live worm from his eye, in one of Mulund’s rarest medical instances.

The parasite – which had taken residence under conjunctiva (the transparent layer that covers the front of the eye) – had travelled all the way from Krishnamurthy’s intestine, through the blood stream, to reach the eye. Its journey stunned doctors, who said that they had not heard of a precedent.

“We haven’t come across such long worms travelling so far,” said eye surgeon Dr V Seetharaman, who operated upon Krishnamurthy at Fortis Hospital, Mulund.

Doctors at JJ Hospital, one of the city’s largest medical facilities, said that they had encountered only one such instance in the past 20 years, but the crawly culprit in the case was only 2 to 3 cm long.

Krishnamurthy started feeling irritation in his left eye two weeks ago. He consulted an ophthalmologist, who prescribed him eye drops. The twitching and pain, however, didn’t subside.

On Wednesday morning, the 75-year-old consulted Dr Seetharaman.

“I was shocked when the doctor told me that there was a live worm in my left eye and that I needed to undergo a surgery,” Krishnamurthy said just hours after the surgery.

Dr Seetharaman said that the worm was not only alive, but moving, and was visible by naked eye. “It was coiled up underneath the conjunctiva, below the superficial layer of the eye,” he said.

 

“There have been cases, though very rare, of intestinal worms travelling to the eye. But never a worm as long as this one.” Dr Seetharaman made a small opening in Krishnamurthy’s conjunctiva, and removed the 12.5-cm worm using a pair of forceps. The tricky procedure, which was video-recorded, lasted 15 to 20 minutes. “The worm could have travelled deeper into the eye or gone to the brain through the optic nerves, which could have been fatal,” the eye surgeon said, adding that the case was his first in his 30-year practice.

Krishnamurthy’s wife, Saraswati, who witnessed the surgery, said that the sight of live worm being pulled out from her husband’s eye left her horrified.

“It just kept moving and jumping; it was scary for a bit.”

Saraswati initially thought that her husband’s passion for gardening had landed him in trouble.

“He does gardening for most part of the day, so I thought that some worm from a plant may have entered his eye. Doctors explained that it had travelled from his intestine,” she said.

Dr Ragini Parekh, an eye surgeon at JJ that sees 300 eye patients in a day, said that intestinal worms that entered the eye were usually small.

“In my 20-year practice, this is the first time I have heard about a nearly 13-cm-long worm surgically removed from an eye,” said Parekh, who heads the ophthalmology department.

She added that had the worm not been removed, it could have died in Krishnamurthy’s eye and caused a toxic reaction.

“The patient could even lose his/her eye in such cases,” she said.
