ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Three Florida businessmen have pleaded guilty to conspiring to scam Xerox out of $25 million worth of toner for printers sold by the company.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Rochester says Monday that brothers David Haynes and Kyle Haynes, and Bryan Day pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and filing a false tax return.

The Daytona-area residents and two other Florida men were charged in August 2017 with forming sham companies that bought dozens of Xerox office printers and over-ordered about $25 million worth of toner from Xerox but never used it to make prints.

Prosecutors say the men resold the toner to a person in Miami for about $11 million.

Xerox has a location in Webster, outside Rochester.

Charges are pending against Robert Fisher and Jason Haynes, brother of David and Kyle.
