Posted June 24, 2010

— Police were searching Thursday for a Rocky Mount woman who they said had more than $1.2 million in counterfeit merchandise for sale.

Warrants have been issued charging Xiao Xu Wu, 36, whose address was unavailable, with two counts of criminal use of counterfeit trademarks.

Police said Wu was selling goods, including phony Louis Vuitton handbags, Timberland boots, Armani sunglasses and Coach shoes, from a store on South Church Street.

The case remains under investigation.

    This is exactly why I have my doors and windows bolted shut. I'm afraid some Chinese woman with a fake Louis Vuitton handbag will wander in while I'm asleep. RMPD, keeping Rocky Mount citizens safe from phony fashions.

    And this is different from the Raleigh Flea Market how? Check out the guy who is selling bluetooth items for cell phones. The outside packages are name brands but the pieces inside don't fit plastic packaging.

    Anyone who would buy anything from someone on South Church Street and think it is the real thing should get ripped off

    And this is news...b/c??? They are dozens of places from Rocky Mount to whereever in NC that sells this stuff! They should go to the flea market down in Rocky Mount every Friday morning...they'll meet their quota for the month!!!

    they only go after these people when they have nothing else to do. I can take you to flea markets in Fayetteville right now and show you dozens of stalls selling this stuff. Talked to an agent from NC, and he told me they only have 2 or 3 agents for the whole state. They get caught pay a fine, and sit up again cross town.
