Prior Lake Man Gets 18 Months For Making Fake Stamps

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 32-year-old Prior Lake man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for making fake postage stamps.

Andre George Mehilove was sentenced on one count of counterfeiting postage stamps on Wednesday and ordered to pay $230,000 in restitution.

Police say Mehilove admitted from August of 2006 to April of 2009, he created counterfeit postage meter stamps using his personal computer and printer. The stamps were copies of the postage meter stamps he bought online.

Police seized various computers, items with fake postage, PayPal identity devices and online postage labels on April 3, 2009.

Mehilove was indicted on July 6, 2011 and pleaded guilty to the crime on Oct. 17, 2011.

    Murders get less time in this state. Our system is a joke. Amy Senser won’t even do a week for her murder.

  • Andy

    Thank god this hardened criminal is off the street, I was scared to leave my house. Can you say victimless crime.

  • Murph

    He musta been licker..ed up, when he thought this scam would work!

  • just sayin

    They probably tracked who the item was being sent to, and investigated through their purchase – ebay/paypal transaction.

    In turn, he was caught. Simple.

  • Joseph

    He is into a lot of other stuff besides making fake postage meter stamps. He is also a real estate broker, property manager and a few other scam businesses. I wish they would investigate his other operations as well.
