JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Tennessee resident has been arrested for the sale of counterfeit goods in Kosciusko.

Attorney General Jim Hood said Monday that 33-year-old Ali Said Khdeir of Memphis was recently arrested following an undercover joint operation by his Intellectual Property Task Force and the Attala County Sheriff’s Department.

Khdeir is accused of selling counterfeit goods and possession with intent to sell counterfeit goods. It was unknown if he has an attorney.

During the operation, Hood says investigators observed Khdeir selling a large number of alleged counterfeit goods, including NFL hats and the prescription pills, Viagra and Cialis, to a general store in Kosciusko.

Hood says Khdeir had transported the products into Mississippi from out of state.

If found guilty, Khdeir faces up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.
