Man faces jail time for trying to return 10,000 nonrefundable cans
HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan man who authorities say was trying to return more than 10,000 cans and bottles for 10 cents apiece has pleaded guilty to one count of beverage return of nonrefundable bottles.
The Livingston Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports that Brian Edward Everidge of Columbiaville faces up to five years in prison at his Nov. 3 sentencing.
He entered his plea Friday in Livingston County Circuit Court in Howell.
Authorities have said that Everidge was stopped for speeding April 27 by state police in Livingston County. Inside the truck he was driving were aluminum cans and glass bottles that police were told were from Kentucky.
To legally get a bottle or can refund in Michigan, beverages must be bought in the state.
