THE VILLAGES, Fla. (TND) — Federal authorities arrested a 77-year-old man for allegedly buying more than $1,800 in erectile dysfunction drugs without a prescription — and intending to sell them in the massive Florida retirement community The Villages.
Reginald Odell Kincer was arrested last month and charged with receiving misbranded drugs in interstate commerce, which makes this a federal case.
He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge and agreed to have his case heard before a magistrate judge instead of a jury. He faces a year in federal prison and a fine of $10,000, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida.
Authorities say Kincer received more than $1,800 of erectile dysfunction drugs that had been shipped through interstate commerce. They allege he received Snovitra-20, Vilitra 20, Cenforce 100, Vidalista 20, Tadalafil Tablets 20, Kamini Sildenafil Oral Jelly, Kamagra Oral Jelly, and Vardenafil.
The feds claim those drugs were misbranded because Kincer got them without a prescription from a licensed doctor, and that Kincer planned to redistribute the drugs to others in The Villages and even outside Florida.
The Villages is a census-designated place in north-central Florida, with nearly 80,000 fulltime residents. It was featured in the 2020 documentary “Some Kind of Heaven.”
The Villages is no stranger to stories about the sex lives of its residents.
Rumors about swingers, public sex, and high rates of sexually transmitted diseases have swirled around the retirement haven for decades, but a report by the Tampa Bay Times last year said the three counties containing The Villages tended to have significantly lower rates of sexually transmitted diseases compared to the rest of Florida.
