Police said they arrested a man last week after he was caught selling fake, high-fashion clothing via the Internet and in a store.
Henderson police said they came across a series of online ads showcasing True Religion clothing at very low prices. They said detectives set up a meeting with the seller, identified as 44-year-old Gregory Jones, to buy a pair of True Religion jeans, a Michael Kors purse and a Gucci belt. They said Jones sold the items for $200, well below the retail price of the items.
Investigators said the jeans, purse and belt were determined to be counterfeit. They said a search of Jones' home and a store in the 300 block of East Warm Springs Road turned up several hundred pieces of clothing and accessories that are believed to be counterfeit.
Jones was charged with 13 counts of selling, displaying or advertising goods with a false trademark.
Police reminded shoppers that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it likely is.
