The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says deputies and agents with the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State have seized more than a $100,000 worth of counterfeit clothing and arrested five people.

They say they began their investigation after getting complaints from customers who said they'd purchased inferior products with brand names like Nike and Timberland from local businesses.

They arrested 40-year-old John Anthony Breedlove - owner of “Got Fresh Exclusive Outfitters" - and charged him with felony criminal use of a counterfeit trademark and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Also seized from his business was a laptop computer stolen from a Cumberland County residence in 2008.

Also accused is 26-year-old Brydes Deshawn Clack - co-owner of “BK Fashions.” He is charged with criminal use of a counterfeit trademark and felony conspiracy. A second co-owner, 31-year old Kendal Kamar Ragland faces the same charges.

At a third business, 35-year-old Lincoln Andrew Waters - owner of “Capps” - was also charged with criminal use of a counterfeit trademark and felony conspiracy. One of his employees - 32-year old Terell Maurice Dickens - is charged with criminal use of a counterfeit trademark, felony conspiracy, and obstruction for allegedly giving detectives a false name.
