OSHP recovers designer counterfeit merchandise



Published: Tue, April 3, 2012 @ 2:35 p.m.

SWANTON — Two men from Chicago are facing felony charges after Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers recovered 81 counterfeit handbags and other merchandise, valued at nearly $50,000.

Troopers stopped a 2002 Cadillac Deville for a lane violation, on the Ohio Turnpike at approximately 5:43 p.m. Sunday. A consent search revealed numerous counterfeit handbags and other merchandise in the trunk and passenger compartment of the vehicle.

Troopers seized these counterfeit items: 19 wallets, 13 belts, 21 pair of sunglasses, 12 pair of jeans and 88 Coach labels. The merchandise included designer brands such as Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Gucci, Chanel, Sorrentino, Tory Burch, and Dooney and Burke. Both occupants admitted the merchandise was counterfeit and that it had been purchased in New York for resale in Chicago.

The driver, Courtney Shelby, 26, and passenger, Steven McGee, 35, both of Chicago, were incarcerated in the Ottawa County Jail and charged with trademark counterfeiting, a fifth-degree felony.

If convicted, each could face up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine.

Based on the story of the union's treasurer and her sentence, they should get about 3 years of probation and no fine.
