After making a series of undercover purchases of counterfeit movies at Balloon World, Larchmont Police say they seized 50,000 bootleg CDs and equipment on October 29.
Police described this as”DVD burning hardware, computers and software, and packaging materials, an aggregate of counterfeit movie and music discs in excess of 50000″
The counterfeit video and music discs seized were estimated to be valued at $100,000.
The raid and undercover surveillance were the result of a tip to police.
Two Port Chester men were taken into custody at the time of the warrant execution and charged with Trademark Counterfeiting in the 1st degree, a Felony.
Both were arraigned in Larchmont Justice Court late Friday and Felix Renaldo was released on $3000 bail while Robert Toneatti was in Westchester County Jail because he could not make $5000 bail.
