Theft of Trademark
An East Gadsden business owner is arrested in connection to selling counterfeit merchandise. Etowah County Sheriff’s deputies charged Hoa Tran of Glencoe with one count of theft of trademark/trade secret. Tran is accused of selling counterfeit Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch purses at his business. Investigators say they seized 114 items from Quick Nails in East Gadsden. The investigation began with a tip from a citizen followed by a purchase by an undercover investigator. That purchase led to a search warrant at the business. Tran is free on a $2,500 property bond.
