GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- It will be 30 months in federal prison for a Florida man convicted in federal court in Grand Rapids of supplying counterfeit Gillette razor blades to Meijer stores in Michigan.

Jeffrey Telsey was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty earlier this year.  Federal prosecutors say Telsey was including the counterfeit blades from China in shipments of legitimate products to Meijer stores.

Proctor & Gamble says since federal agents began investigating Telsey in 2008, sales of counterfeit Gillette razors have fallen substantially.
