GEORGETOWN, Ky (LEX 18) Georgetown Police say they have arrested a man at the center of a massive contraband ring.
Detectives say they began seeing poor quality hats with NFL logos being sold in the area in early October. Detective Chris Bayer and the Georgetown Police Department have spent this past month tracking down the elusive suspect.
They confiscated more than 200 counterfeit sports team caps when they raided two convenience stores last week.
"Then, this past Monday, we got a tip that the guy who was supplying them with this merchandise was in town," said Chris Bayer.
A tip led authorities to 49-year-old Jay Park, a Korean native and U.S. citizen.
He had a van filled with 5,000 counterfeit items, the street value of $30,000.
Detective Bayer has a simple but important message for buyers.
"If the price is too good it's probably fake," he said.
Park has been released from the Scott County Jail on bond. He could face federal charges.
