FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - A vendor at a Southern California swap meet has been arrested on suspicion of selling digital drives containing pirated music with a retail value of more than $860,000.

Police in Fontana said Monday that investigators found Fernando Sanchez March 23 at the Bel Air Swap Meet offering thumb drives and flash drives for sale.

Officials say the dozens of drives contained more than 725,000 illegally obtained songs. They didn’t say how many Sanchez might have sold.

The 21-year-old was arrested and could face a felony charge for failure to disclose origin of a recording.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
