Counterfeit clothing sales land Las Vegas man in jail

Henderson Police have arrested a man suspected of selling counterfeit high-fashion clothing such as Gucci and True Religion on the Internet and at a store.

Gregory Jones, 44, of Las Vegas, was booked Thursday into the Henderson Detention Center on 13 felony counts of selling, displaying or advertising goods with a false trademark.

Henderson Police uncovered several hundred pieces of suspected counterfeit designer clothing and accessories in Jones’ home and in a store in the 300 block of East Warm Springs Road, Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul.

Detectives discovered Jones’ alleged scheme after answering a series of ads offering True Religion clothing at low prices while conducting a routine classified advertisements search online.

Detectives set up a meeting with Jones to buy a pair of jeans, a Gucci belt and a Michael Kors purse for a total of $200, well below average retail price for the clothing, Paul said.

The clothing was later determined to be counterfeit, Paul said.

Authorities urge anyone with information regarding the case to call Henderson Police at 267-4750, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555 or visit www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
