State Police Find $684,000 in Counterfeit Computer Parts
New Jersey state police say they’ve arrested a man in connection with a counterfeit computer parts scheme.
Mark Lin was arrested Wednesday after police executed a search warrant at a warehouse in Roselle Park. They say they found nearly $700,000 in counterfeited trademarked electronic components bearing the names of companies like Apple, Dell Microsoft and others.
Police began investigating this fall after Apple notified them that counterfeit Apple products were being sold at bodegas in Union City and on the website www.muchbuy.com .
Police say the 34-year-old Lin lives in Roselle Park and owns MuchBuy, Inc.
He was charged with possession of trademark counterfeiting merchandise and released pending a court appearance.
It wasn’t known if Lin had retained an attorney, and a phone number could not be found for him.
