Pair arrested yet again for selling counterfeit apparel

OKOLONA — Two Chickasaw County residents have been arrested for a second time in a year on charges of selling counterfeit clothing.

Attorney General Jim Hood says Willie McMillan, 46 and Sophia Hill, 47, were arrested after an undercover investigation into their store, Urban Wear.

Investigators seized about $275,000 in counterfeit clothing from Okolona store.

Hood says the investigation was sparked after tipsters reported the pair had reopened their store and resumed selling counterfeit goods.

McMillian and Hill remained in the Chickasaw County jail Monday on two counts each of sale of counterfeit goods. If convicted, McMillian and Hill face from one year to five years in prison for each count.
