Two Canadian brothers jailed for UG counterfeit Viagra lab.

Two men in their 60’s have been sentenced to 5 years each in jail for creating counterfeit medication. Montrealer Pierre Girouard, 64 and his brother Gilles, 62, from Repentigny, were making methamphetamines, ecstasy, counterfeit Viagra and Cialis.

The RCMP carried out searches in Pointes-aux-Trembles and Repentigny back in 2008…which essentially dismantled the laboratories.

uring the raids, they found almost 200 000 pills, fake drugs and equipment that could be used for large scale manufacturing…the street value of the seizure was estimated to be around 1 million dollars.

The fraudsters were using the logos of companies, to give their pills a level of authenticity…and to fool buyers. The Girouard brothers, who pleaded guilty January 13, 2010, must also pay a fine of $10 000 each.
