Two Northeast Ohio men are facing stiff consequences after they were charged in federal court for their involvement in stealing and selling prescription erectile dysfunction medications.

Zacresha Jackson, a 39-year-old South Euclid resident, was a pharmacy technician at the Cleveland Clinic's Taussig Cancer Center. He's accused of stealing bottles of Viagra and Cialis from the pharmacy and selling them to Mamoud Mustafa, 63, of Lakewood. Mustafa is accused of reselling those dick pills to others, without a prescription, at an East Cleveland convenience store called Euclid Convenient Express.

The two are charged with conspiracy to distribute misbranded pharmaceuticals because of this scheme, which is was said to have occurred between June 2008 and August 2010. The charges indicate Jackson stole a total of 1,790 Viagra pills (100mg) during 10 incidents between March and June 2010.

The pair could be sentenced to hard time if convicted.
