I thought I had seen it all until this one! What started off as a call to police of a gangster selling “televisions” in the parking lot of a local shopping center in Los Angeles, quickly turned into a police pursuit ending with the recovery of some interesting “televisions.” Turns out, the gangster had what he THOUGHT was a great idea. He decided to wrap a piece of 46 inch plywood in what appeared to be legitimate packing materials for a high end, brand name, flat screen television. He even went so far as to wear a “Best Buy” polo shirt. The gangster was selling the “plywood” televisions for $200.00 to $400.00. When law enforcement attempted to contact the subject, he fled from police in his vehicle and led them on a pursuit. As usual, the subject was caught and law enforcement recovered the counterfeit televisions. I have to say that this was a very creative idea. This gangster suckered several people into buying these counterfeit “plywood” televisions; however, he will now be spending some quality time in the county jail for running from the police and selling counterfeit TVs.
