Phoenix man accused of selling fake Viagra online

PHOENIX — Authorities say a Phoenix man is in custody for allegedly
selling fake sexual stimulation products on the internet.

Phoenix police said 68-year-old Melvin John Rutkowski is being held on suspicion
of fraud scheme, control of an illegal enterprise and counterfeit marks.

The Pfizer Corporation hired a private security company two months ago to help
in the investigation of possible counterfeit Pfizer products being sold online.

The security company purchased Viagra from a website and Pfizer determined the
product was counterfeit.

Phoenix police were contacted and detectives identified Rutkowski as a suspect
in the case.

Police executed a search warrant Wednesday night and said they recovered
thousands of counterfeit pills.

The said Rutkowski was booked into jail on several counterfeiting related
offenses. It was unclear Friday if he has a lawyer.
