Selma woman charged with felony, suspected of trying to sell fake NFL jerseys

From staff reportsFebruary 3, 2014 

— A Selma woman has been charged with a felony for what her arrest warrant describes as the attempted sale of counterfeit NFL jerseys.

Laura Lee Lockwood Brown, of 660 Old Dam Road, was arrested on Monday by state Alcohol Law Enforcement agents.

She is accused of putting 24 of the jerseys up for sale, an arrest warrant states. The jerseys were valued at $150 each, the warrant states, though it is unclear if she was selling them for that amount.

Brown, 42, apparently was held at the Wake County Detention Center under the name Laura Lee Cooke. Her bail is set at $2,000.
