Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Henderson police have arrested a man accused of peddling counterfeit high fashion clothing on the Internet and a local clothing store.
44-year-old Gregory D. Jones of Las Vegas was booked into the Henderson Detention Center on 13 felony counts of selling, displaying and advertising goods with a false trademark.
Henderson detectives routinely search online classified advertisement websites looking for stolen property or suspicious postings.
They found a series of ads offering True Religion clothing at very low prices. Detectives set up a meeting with the suspect to buy a pair of True Religion jeans, a Gucci belt and a Michael Kors purse for $200, well below the retail price for legitimate clothing items.
The items purchased were determined to be counterfeit. A search warrant served at the store in the 300 block of East Warm Springs Road and at the suspect's home, yielded several hundred pieces of suspected counterfeit designer clothing and accessories.
Henderson police want to remind everyone if a deal appears too good to be true, it likely is.
Anyone with further information on this case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
