Two people from Northeast Ohio were charged in federal court for their roles in a conspiracy in which one stole bottles of Viagra and Cialis and the other sold the pills on the street.

Mahmoud Mustafa, 63, of Lakewood, and Zacresha Jackson, 39, of South Euclid, were charged with conspiracy to distribute misbranded pharmaceuticals.

Jackson was employed as a pharmacy technician in the retail pharmacy of the Taussig Cancer Center at the Cleveland Clinic. Jackson agreed to steal bottles of Viagra and Cialis pills from the pharmacy and sell them to Mustafa. Mustafa then re-sold the pills, according to the information.

Consumers purchased the pills without a prescription, without being required to consult a physician, and without receiving proper notice of the risks associated with taking these prescription medications, according to the information.
