      Police arrest man in counterfeiting merchandise case


      Myrtle Beach police arrested a man for selling counterfeit merchandise at a business on Kings Highway.


      David Ohana, 38, is accused of selling thousands of dollars worth of novelty goods, with the fake use of trademark names, at the Nothing Over $7.99 store, according to the police report.


      Monster Energy, Jack Daniels Distillery, National Football League NFL, and Hello Kitty were some of the trademark names on merchandise for sale.


      Heat transfers were also found in the store to make the clothing items with the fake trademarks.


      After an investigation in May, police found out several businesses around the city that had been selling the counterfeit items.


      Jewelry was also seized. It's value had not been calculated when the police report was written.


      A press conference will be held Monday to discuss further details about this case.
