Heroin accused ‘ran counterfeit designer goods store’

In another case that highlights the link between counterfeiting and other forms of criminality, fake designer goods have been uncovered during a heroin investigation in the US.

The case in Nashville, Tennessee, centred around a search of the home of Curtis and Valerie Bobo after an undercover officer purchased heroin from Curtis Bobo on two occasions. The search revealed an illicit store in the couple’s garage selling more than fake Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce & Gabbana items, according to local news reports. The haul included fake hand bags, shoes, belts, and sunglasses.

Also seized were two guns (a rifle & semi-automatic pistol), 19g of marijuana, and $627 cash. Curtis Bobo has been charged with possession of a gun in the commission of a dangerous felony, possession of heroin for resale, marijuana possession and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
