Two Twin Cities men have been indicted for allegedly sending more than 15,000 doses of counterfeit drugs to customers.
The indictment filed in federal court Wednesday says 26-year-old Nicholas David Lundsten of Spring Lake Park, and 29-year-old Patrick James Barron of Fridley delivered thousands of drugs labeled as Cialis, Viagra, Levitra and Propetia, when in fact none of them were authentic.
The indictment also says the pair imported tens of thousands of pills purporting to be other drugs.
They are each charged with one count of introduction into interstate commerce of misbranded drugs and one count of importation of non-narcotic controlled substances.
A phone number for Lundsten was not listed. A message left with Barron was not immediately returned.
