Hey, These Aren't Gucci Handcuffs!

Too bad they don't have video of the arrests.

Owners at three local clothing stores have been arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit merchandise, worth over $14,000.

Here are the people arrested:

>> Leeann Casaletta, 27 - Chic Boutique
>> Joette Mancuso, 52 - Joette's Gifts
>> Wei "Danny" Chen, 30 Glimmer Glamour

The counterfeit merchandise sold by these three owners included brands like Coach, Burberry, Chanel, and Tiffany & Company.

State Police also seized $14,500 worth of merchandise and $1,500 in cash.

All three were taken without incident and are being charged with trademark counterfeiting in the second degree. All will be back in court at a later date.

I wonder what kind of fake handbag goes with prison jumpsuit orange?
