The MarketPlace of the Americas at 5891 Scarborough Boulevard in east Columbus was raided Saturday for allegedly selling counterfeit goods.
Deputies said all ten vendors inside the flea market were selling counterfeit goods. The total retail value of all the goods was estimated at $2.5-million. The knock-off goods included purses, sunglasses and sneakers.
The Franklin County Sheriff's office said the investigation had been underway for around two weeks. Deputies went undercover with counterfeit products experts to build the case.
Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said the type of operation busted Saturday steals money from companies and taxpayers by selling counterfeit goods at a cheaper price than originals.
No arrests were made Saturday but the Sheriff said grand jury indictments would be sought.
