Tribute Flag Found At Flea Market
Returned to Marine's Mom

An enforcement operation conducted by the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force over trafficking counterfeit goods resulted in seven arrests on Sunday at the Marysville Flea Market — and two trucks filled with allegedly pirated copies of movies and music.

Local residents arrested are:

• Irasema L. Espindola, 18, of the 5000 block of Lindhurst Avenue in Linda, arrested on suspicion of fraud, counterfeit mark violation and criminal conspiracy;

• Eludim Espindola-Torres, 30, also of the 5000 block Lindhurst Avenue, arrested on suspicion of criminal conspiracy; and n Gerardo Hernandez-Reyes, 28, of the 1500 block of Upland Drive, Yuba City, arrested on suspicion of criminal conspiracy.

State and federal officers with search warrants went to San Jose and the Marysville market on Simpson Lane in Yuba County, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said.

The hi-tech task force seized about 50,000 counterfeit CDs, 30,000 DVDs and nearly $26,000 in cash believed to be a portion of the profits from the operation.

One man familiar with the flea market in Marysville said copies of movies were for sale there before DVDs were in stores. The copies sold for $5, said the man, who declined to give his name.

Officers were at the Marysville market from about 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Sunday.

More than a thousand people were attending the flea market and the event went on as scheduled. Voicemails left Monday at the office of the market were not answered.

Law enforcement agencies involved in the raid included the FBI, the Yuba County Sheriff's Department, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department and the Marysville Police Department.

A couple who discovered a tribute flag for a fallen Marine at a Texas flea market presented it to his mother Saturday, more than nine years after he was killed in Iraq.

Lanie and Walter Brown gave the flag to Patsy Maciel before a small crowd gathered at the grave of Lance Cpl. Fred Maciel in the northern Houston suburb of Humble.

The Browns bought the flag for $5 after finding it tucked away earlier this month in the corner of a flea market in Hemphill, about 170 miles from Houston. The flag has about two dozen messages written by other Marines for Maciel, who was 20 when he died in a helicopter crash in Fallujah, Iraq, in 2005.

He was one of 31 American servicemen killed in the crash, which occurred during a sandstorm. It was among the single largest loss of American lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"We'll always remember the sacrifice you made," one message says. Another says, "Thank you for being who you were ... Rest in peace."

Walter Brown, whose own son is a Marine, said he knew he had to get it home.

West Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Two men have been arrested after another inspection at the Metro Flea Market on Highway 1 in West Columbia for fake goods.

Sha Kim Lahmel Graham, 19, and Nigel Ali Moore, 38, have been arrested on charges of selling fake goods worth a combined total of $5,800.

Deputies say they were conducting an inspection of vendor booths at the flea market Wednesday afternoon when they found Graham and Moore selling fake goods.

The items included 20 National Football League and National Basketball Association team hats, 22 Nike Air Jordan athletic shoes, 24 AF1 athletic shoes, one Gucci belt and 115 compact disc recordings of commercially produced movies.

Graham and Moore are being held at the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting bond hearings.
