A Washington County man was charged Tuesday with conspiracy to launder money in relation to an alleged effort to smuggle medicine into the country from Canada.
Jeffrey A. Markovitz, whose age and town of residence weren't available, ordered "unapproved and misbranded prescription drugs" from Canada, according to a criminal information filed in U.S. District Court. The information listed a $27,947 payment for the drugs in 2007. It also said the government is seeking to seize $650,000 derived by Mr. Markovitz from crime.
Mr. Markovitz could not be reached for comment, and no attorney is listed on the court docket.
