 Kenner man arrested for trademark counterfeiting

 Kenner - A Kenner man has been arrested on trademark counterfeiting after police learned he was selling counterfeit items out of Jefferson Flea Market, located at 2134 Airline Drive, in Kenner.  On Thursday, January 17, 2013, Sam Lenox, Jr., 50, who provided the home address of 332 Jackson Street, Kenner, was arrested by members of the Kenner Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.  Lenox was charged with the crime of illegal use of counterfeit trademarks (3-counts).

 The investigation began when members of the Homeland Security Investigations, learned that Sam Lenox, owner of Sam Enterprise, was selling items with counterfeit trademarks.  An uncover purchase of a NFL jersey revealed counterfeit trademarks of the NFL.  Homeland Security Investigators forwarded the information to the Kenner Police Department, who obtained a search warrant for Lenox’s residence in addition to his booth located within the Flea market. 

 As the result of the search warrant detectives (with the Kenner Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations) located several NFL licensed items, NBA licensed items, and NIKE tennis shoes inside Lenox’s residence and booth within the flea market.  All items seized from the residence and business was verified as items with counterfeit trademarks, which belonged to the NFL, NBA, and NIKE. 

 At the time of this press release, Lenox remains in custody, no bond has been set.
