Man pleads guilty after found in possession of $10K worth of counterfeit goods
BELLEFONTE -- A Pittsburgh man on Thursday pleaded guilty to a charge of being in possession of $10,000 worth of counterfeit goods.
Leslie Weathers, 58, pleaded guilty to one count of trademark counterfeiting.
According to the Centre County District Attorney's Office, a state trooper pulled over Weathers on December 3, 2014, after he crossed the white fog line four to five times.
When the trooper approached the vehicle, he spotted several boxes and several plastic bags.
The officer ran a background check on Weathers and learned that Weathers had been charged with trademark counterfeiting in 2007.
Weathers told the trooper he was returning to Pittsburgh after shopping in New York.
A search warrant was obtained and investigators discovered 12 pairs of counterfeit Timberlands, Ugg and Michael Kors boots, six counterfeit North Face jackets, 12 counterfeit Michael Kors purses, nine counterfeit Michael Kors wallets and five counterfeit watches, with a total value of $10,000.
Weathers will be sentenced May 4.
