ALCORN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Officials say two Alcorn County men have been arrested following an investigation that uncovered more than $1.5 million in counterfeit goods and coins.

Attorney General Jim Hood said in a news release Tuesday 39-year-old David Driver and 42-year-old Russell Haynie were arrested by authorities Friday at their Corinth business, Discount Wallet Outlet.

Hood says both men face charges of the sale of counterfeit goods, and wire and mail fraud. If convicted of all charges, they each face a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $40,000 fine.

Hood said the investigation revealed that the defendants were selling counterfeit goods to the general public from their store and online.

Online jail records do not list attorneys for the two men.
