ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two Navy pharmacy technicians have been sentenced to 55 months in prison after being convicted of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and filing a false tax return.

The charges are in connection to insulin and diabetic supplies theft that authorities say Anthony David Olson, 53 and Patrick Edward Keefe, 34, committed. 

Investigators found that the two stole insulin and diabetic test strips and sold them to an unlicensed drug wholesaler in Florida.

Payments for those products were delivered by electronic transfers or credit card payments.

PayPal records show Olson and Keefe received more than $1 million for insulin and diabetic supplies that they had stolen from the pharmacies they worked in.

In imposing the sentences, Judge W. Louis Sands said that the defendants' actions involved a reckless risk of death or serious bodily injury to diabetics, as the stolen insulin was not properly refrigerated by the unlicensed wholesaler.
