HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan man who authorities say was trying to illegally return more than 10,000 cans for 10 cents apiece is heading to trial.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports (https://bit.ly/29QKmjX ) a judge ruled Wednesday there’s enough evidence against Brian Edward Everidge of Columbiaville for the case to move forward.

State police Motor Carrier Officer Clifford Lyden testified he stopped Everidge for speeding in a truck April 27 in Livingston County. Lyden says the truck was packed with aluminum cans that Everidge said were from Kentucky.

Defense attorney Marcus Wilcox says Everidge was caught too early for the charge to stick, saying he “attempted to attempt to return the bottles.”

To legally get a bottle or can refund in Michigan, beverages must be bought in the state.
