CVS employee from Williamsville arrested for thefts worth $2.5 million

A Williamsville man was arrested for the theft of medical products valued at more than $2.5 million from his employer in Rochester, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of New York announced.

Antonio Rivera, 35, faces several charges after being arrested in Rochester Friday. Rivera, a senior assistant purchasing associate for CVS Pharmacy since 2007, allegedly ordered excessive amounts of diabetic test strips, then intercepted the shipments and sold them to third-party purchasers for personal profit.

Prosecutors say an internal audit by CVS could not account for 20,203 boxes of diabetic strips purchased by Rivera, which amounted to a financial loss of $2,535,307.62.

Rivera is charged with theft of pre-retail medical products; trafficking in stolen pre-retail medical products; conspiracy to sell and distribute stolen pre-retail medical products; and wire fraud. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

1. I immediately thought insulin was being stolen.

Looks like I wasn't too far from the truth.
