LEXINGTON, N.C. — Police have seized additional merchandise in the Wholesale Alley counterfeiting case.

Ping Hsiao Mao, 61, and Sheau Chen Yu Mao, 58, both of Fresh Meadows, N.Y., were charged with one count each of felony possession with intent to sell and deliver counterfeit goods.

The couple are accused of selling counterfeit merchandise, such as North Face jackets and Beats headphones, at Wholesale Alley in Lexington.

Additional merchandise seized over the past two days has brought the total to $925,190 worth of counterfeit merchandise.

The Maos don’t have a Lexington address and Davidson County Sheriff David Grice assumed the couple rented a hotel in the area for a few days at a time to sell goods from the space they rented on Wholesale Alley off Highway 52.
