Man accused of trafficking in counterfeit goods

WHEELING (AP) — A New York man has been accusing of bringing counterfeit goods to Wheeling for sale at a Christmas show.

Thirty-seven-year-old Xian Chen was indicted in federal court in Wheeling on nine counts of trafficking in counterfeit goods.

Federal prosecutors said Thursday in a news release that in November, he brought fake brand-name goods from clothing accessories, apparel and electronics makers.

Each count is punishable by up to 10 years in prison upon conviction. Prosecutors also are seeking the forfeiture of articles and property allegedly used in the scheme.
