Second Suspect Arrested in Goldsboro Counterfeit Bust

— A second man charged in a counterfeit bust involving more than $80,000 in merchandise was arrested Thursday.

Aseed Libib Ismail, 23, of 4511 Lakehill Drive in Wilson, is charged with one count of criminal use of counterfeit trademarks.

Ismail was in jail under a $15,000 secured bond Thursday.

The charge stems from the bust last week in which Wayne County authorities seized counterfeit clothes, DVDs and software from Hip Hop Spot on North Spence Avenue and Urban Collection on East Elm Street , both in Goldsboro.

Earlier this week, Corey Felicane Lewis was arrested and charged with one count each of counterfeit videos and DVD, criminal use of a trademark and recording and distribution of recorded sound.

He was released under a $21,000 secured bond.

Investigators said Lewis owns Urban Collection and Ismail owns Hip Hop Spot.
