Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office
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.
A 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 Florida Department of Health tested samples of the fluid in the bottles and found they contained fecal matter, according to the Florida Times-Union.
Authorities say the 21 customers who purchased the used enemas have been notified.
If convicted, Robinson faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
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.
