LUBBOCK, TX--- Two people are facing charges of selling counterfeit products at a local flea market.  

Tuesday, Bobby Prado and Jennifer Dillard were arrested for selling counterfeited products at the National Flea Market of Lubbock
Sgt. Jason Lewis says investigators came to police after it was determined the pair were selling fake Prada merchandise.

"Those companies contact these special investigators that are experts in identifying in whether something is fraudulent," said Lewis.  

Both Bobby Prado and Jennifer Dillard were released from jail on bond.

Sgt. Lewis says these calls for counterfeit items in Lubbock occur about 3 to 4 times a month.  

"I think a lot of times womens accessories are a big thing to counterfeit," said Lewis.  

If you think someone has sold you a counterfeited product, the best think to do is contact the manufacturer.  
"You can go on their website and send them an email," said Lewis.

Just because it looks like a good deal, doesn't mean you're getting the real thing.

"People should just be aware. Just because you're not a flea market doesn't mean what you're purchasing is the real thing," said Lewis.  "Just know if it sounds too good to be true,  there's a good chance that is not true."
