They would then remove the contents and fill the empty box with more expensive products like electronics or a pet product called Frontline. They hid the cheaper products in the store. They would pay for the items checked in boxes containing cheaper items. The two would then sell the items on the popular online auction website eBay.com.
If convicted they face up to five years in prison or a fine of $250,000.
