Owner of Sporting Goods Stores Due in Court for Selling Counterfeit Goods

The owner of a pair of Michigan sporting goods stores is facing charges for allegedly selling phony pro and college hats and jerseys.

Terry Harrison was arrested Thursday after being indicted by a federal grand jury for trafficking in counterfeit merchandise.  He's accused of selling bogus apparel including Detroit Lions, Red Wings and Tigers and University of Michigan gear at shops in Traverse City and Okemos.

Police seized 9,487 counterfeit hats and other clothing articles from his stores on January 7. The government said Harrison intentionally sold counterfeit trademarked items.

He awaits his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids on charges of trafficking in counterfeit goods.
