Medical supplies to be distributed to police, first responders on Friday
FRANKFORT – Attorney General Daniel Cameron today announced that medical supplies involved in a suspected price gouging scheme have been returned to Kentucky and will be distributed to local law enforcement agencies and first responders on Friday morning to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Attorney General Cameron partnered with Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery last week to halt the alleged price gouging of medical goods and products by two Tennessee brothers. The individuals are believed to have purchased the items at stores in Tennessee and in Kentucky counties along the 1-75 corridor.
Yesterday, the Tennessee Attorney General’s office delivered Kentucky’s share of the supplies to Frankfort (click here to download photos from the delivery), where it will be distributed to law enforcement and first responders on Friday.
