Matt Colvin and his brother scoured stores around the region buying all the sanitizer they could find in hopes of re-selling it for profit.
The Tennessee Attorney General’s Office has ordered Matt Colvin and Noah Colvin to stop buying and selling medical goods as they investigate reports of price gouging. “We will not tolerate price gouging in this time of exceptional need, and we will take aggressive action to stop it,” said Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III. “During this pandemic, we ask that you report suspicious activity to the Division of Consumer Affairs and refrain from threatening or hostile communication with individuals or businesses you may suspect are price gouging. Our team will review complaints closely and we are prepared to act to protect Tennesseans.”
