Md. market raid nets fake NFL gear
When Gucci and Coach purses and National Football League shirts started showing up at a St. Mary's County farmer's market, suspicious patrons alerted authorities. The result, officials said, was a crackdown on counterfeit merchandise.
On Saturday, state and local officials raided booths at the market in Charlotte Hall, Md. and came away with $88,413 worth of merchandise with counterfeit trademarks, authorities said.
Authorities said they hauled away clothing with fake logos from the National Football League, Major League Baseball and National Basketball Association.
There were counterfeit Coach, Gucci and Louis Vuitton purses, too.
St. Mary's Sheriff's officials said seven suspects were identified and prosecutors are reviewing the case.
