A Brockton, Mass., strip club has come under fire for dealing knock-off New England sports memorabilia to its patrons.
Police raided the Foxy Lady Brockton on Friday and found more than $10,000 in counterfeit Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins gear, according to the Boston Herald.
A number of club employees were reportedly wearing the unlicensed shirts when authorities arrived.
“We seized various boxes of sports shirts,” Brockton police Lt. Paul Bonanca told the Herald. “The same jerseys sometimes sell for $200 at the store.”
According to Bonaca, the club had been buying cheap, poor-quality sports T-shirts for $3 or $5 and either selling them for $10 apiece or offering they as souvenirs for customers who buy two lap dances.
Bonaca expects that Foxy Lady owner Frank Caswell, who declined comment to the Herald, will receive court summons for possession of counterfeit goods.
