ORANGEBURG (WIS/WCSC) - Five people were arrested in Orangeburg County on Saturday during an undercover investigation at the Springfield Flea Market and Silverback Wholesalers.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell stated that more than $120,000 in counterfeit clothes, shoes, movies, CD's and perfume bottles were seized during the investigations.

"We are appreciative of the support from the Secretary of State's Office in being able to conduct these investigations and make these arrests," Ravenell said. "The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office is ever vigilant in our efforts to enforce the laws of South Carolina. We will continue to protect the citizens of this county by checking businesses to ensure they are operating in the full scope of the law. Trademarks, business licenses, or liquor licenses, we are checking them all."

Deputies arrested 24-year-old James Dexter Grant of Sumter and 41-year-old Jarvis Lemoyne Larkins of Cordova and charged them with illegal distribution of recordings.

Deputies also arrested 42-year-old Ahmad Jihad Muhammad of Rowesville, 40-year-old Kelvin Levi Robinson of St. Matthews, and 32-year-old Chevon Mussington Royal of Columbia and charged them with transport, transfer, distribution or sale of a counterfeit item, with a value of at least $10,000. Muhammad was also charged with illegal distribution of recordings.

Each suspect was released on a surety bond of $2,500 or $5,000.

Deputies found more than $120,000 in counterfeit products like cologne, movies, music and shoes. Investigators say Larkins was trying to sell about $4,775 worth of counterfeit goods like 121 CDRs, 98 DVDRs, three NFL jerseys, seven NBA jerseys at the flea market when he was arrested.
