After several months of investigation, Seattle police have busted a NFL jersey counterfeiting ring in North Seattle.
In October, Vice Unit detectives received a complaint about counterfeit jerseys being sold on Craigslist and around Seattle stadiums. Police—working with NFL representatives to figure out whether the jerseys were in fact bogus—went undercover and purchased a jersey from their suspect.
Two months later, police arrested their suspect and found out about a larger operation, selling jerseys over a website.
Yesterday, police arrested another suspect in North Seattle, and recovered more than 900 counterfeit jerseys, including a number of which were New Orleans Saints jerseys.
Police are asking that counterfeiting charges be filed in the case.
