GREENWOOD, SC – A Greenwood man is facing counterfeiting charges after agents with the Greenwood Drug Enforcement Unit, along with representatives from a private investigation firm and the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office, executed a search warrant at 229 Booker Street in Greenwood.

According to a report from the Greenwood Police Department, DEU agents discovered counterfeit brand name shoes and clothing from Nike, Timberland, NBA, Ed Hardy, Black label, Gucci, Evisu, MFG, Enyce, Polo, Coogi, Rock N Republic, Phat Farm, Akademiks, Locaste, Ralph Lauren, Sean John, Adidas and Roca Wear. Agents seized a total of 291 pairs of shoes, 154 jeans, 365 shirts, 27 jackets and 10 sweat suits.

Agents arrested Bruce Bernard Harrison, 55, and charged him with counterfeiting and no business license. According to the report, Harrison told agents that he used his 1993 Chevrolet van to transport the goods from the jockey lot. The vehicle was seized due to being used in the commission of a crime.

The report states that agents also found a $20 bill on Harrison’s person that was used in a controlled buy. Agents seized a total of $328.

Harrison was released on a personal recognizance bond Tuesday morning.

This is sad. So what if he is selling counterfeit items. He's not stealing them they are just look alikes. Apparently he's trying to make a living unlike some people who just sit on their butts and do nothing or the ones out stealing, breaking into homes and selling drugs. I would say with all the crime going on in Greenwood these days this should be the last thing someone should be arrested for. There are bigger crimes to battle. Now this man has lost all this stuff that he probably sells to pay his bills and his selling this didn't hurt anyone except maybe nike for losing a sale. By the way I need a new pair of shoes.

Counterfeit goods is a serious crime. People pay high dollar prices for goods that come out to be counterfeit-- I'd be quite angry myself. And why would you purposely buy counterfeit items? Anyone who feels the need to buy a phony item to pretend they have money--- needs help, I'm sorry, that's self esteem issues to the max.
