BOSTON (AP) - Three Massachusetts men have pleaded guilty to their roles in the illegal online sales of stolen Gillette razor blades.

One of the men was a Gillette employee who stole the blades from the company’s Boston manufacturing plant. He gave them to the other two defendants, who sold the stolen items on eBay.

Federal prosecutors say more than $200,000 worth of blades were stolen.

Joseph Evangelista, of Lowell, the former Gillette employee, pleaded guilty to causing the interstate transportation of stolen property. Robert Liberatore, of Wakefield, and Mark Girardin, of Randolph, each pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns for not reporting the money they made from the sales to the IRS.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 6.

Gillette is owned by Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble Co.
