Tennessee Attorney General investigating hand sanitizer hoarders

Coronavirus Watch

(WEHT)- Tennessee’s Attorney General announced his office is investigating two brothers after they hoarded 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer.

Following the first death from COVID-19 in the United States, Matt and Noah Colvin reportedly went state-to-state buying out hand sanitizer from stores, hoping to resell them for a profit.

After authorities told them to stop, the brothers said the sanitizer is being donated to a church. Officials are now asking the public to report price gougers during the state of emergency.
