Authorities seek counterfeit items

District Attorney General Mike Taylor confirmed on Wednesday that the 9th Judicial Drug Task Force (DTF) executed a search warrant at a business owned by Stan Brown, Dixieland Autos in Coalmont, and at Bear Hollow in Monteagle, also owned by Brown.
According to Taylor’s statement, DTF received a tip that Brown, also the president of the football booster club at Grundy County High School, was stocking and selling counterfeit name-brand items such as The North Face jackets. Agents will go through the evidence seized to determine if they are counterfeit.
Brown had not been charged with anything as of press time. Also, is unclear at this time whether any alleged criminal behavior was connected to Brown’s role as the booster club president.
General Taylor told the Herald on Monday that the investigation is ongoing.
“I don’t know where it will lead,” stated Taylor.
