TUPELO – A Pontotoc County resident has been arrested for selling and producing counterfeit DVDs in the Tupelo area.

Mildred Jones, 49, was arrested earlier this month after a traffic stop on McCullough Boulevard led to discovery of a large stash of allegedly counterfeit CD/DVDs. She is alleged to have been selling counterfeit goods across Lee and Pontotoc counties.

Investigators said they seized about $50,000 in alleged counterfeited copyrighted material.

If found guilty, Jones faces up to eight years in prison.
