People, please do not purchase iPads out of the back of someone’s car. Most likely, it will be fugazi…
A Tennessee man was arrested Sunday on charges that he attempted to sell fake laptop computers out of his vehicle late last year in southern Jefferson County. Emanuel M. Lee, 28, of Cleveland, Tenn., was charged with prohibiting commerce of counterfeit goods and services, according to an arrest warrant.
The warrant states that a Louisville Metro Police detective located Lee and another man on Nov. 15 at Blue Lick Road and South Park Road attempting to sell computer goods from a Lincoln Navigator.
The detective discovered what appeared to be laptop computers and iPads inside the vehicle and confiscated the merchandise, according to the warrant. An investigation showed that the computers were only “shells” without hard drives and keyboards and labels had been taped onto the items.
Police also discovered that the fake devices were made with a piece of glass and white duct tape around the edges with an Apple label glued to the back.
Lee and another man, who has not been identified, were cited at the scene in November on charges unrelated to counterfeiting, but an arrest warrant was issued in December after investigators found the computers to be fakes.
Man, people really ain’t isht!
