DEERFIELD, N.H. (AP) — Police say they’ve seized half-a-million dollars in alleged counterfeit merchandise and arrested four people as part of an undercover operation at the Deerfield Fair.
About a dozen undercover police officers Thursday afternoon purchased wallets, clothing, jewelry and other items that allegedly were knock-offs of name brands with labels such as Gucci and Coach.
Authorities say they conducted the investigation after receiving a tip that several vendors were selling counterfeit items at the fair.
The vendors are due in court Oct. 17 on charges of counterfeiting and fraud.
