NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – A Larchmont retail owner is facing yet another problem with the law.
LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi on the alleged robbery
Police said Plaza Bootery owner Lee Mendez was charged with trademark counterfeiting for allegedly selling fake Uggs and Northface jackets in a January incident, and now Mendez faces robbery in the third degree charges for stealing a customer’s purse.
The 46-year-old is due back in court on Monday for a felony hearing.
Before the alleged robbery happened, agents from the DA’s office raided the store and found a dozen counterfeit Ugg boots and Northface jackets.
Police said if you bought items from Mendez that you suspect are counterfeit, give them a call.
