Man accused of selling counterfeit clothing in St. Charles County

ST. LOUIS • A federal indictment handed down this week accuses a man of selling "large quantities" of fake Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and other apparel that would be worth $250,000 if real.

Demba Ba was indicted in U.S. District Court in St. Louis Wednesday on one felony count of trafficking in counterfeit goods.

The indictment says that he was selling the items at an outdoor shopping area in St. Charles County on May 7. That date coincides with a raid of the Wentzville Flea Market by police and the Homeland Security agents, according to Fox 2-KTVI.

Ba pleaded not guilty Thursday.

Ba's age and hometown were not immediately available. Court records say he speaks both English and Fulani, a language common in West Africa.
