Cops Charge Flushing Man in DVD Sting

Detectives make arrest in Hicksville after finding counterfeit DVDs on suspect.

Nassau County detectives have charged a Flushing man with counterfeiting in connection with the illegal distribution of fake DVDs.

Detectives with the Second Squad charged Zhan Lin, 45, of 166-15 65 Ave., Flushing, following a sting operation in Hicksville.

Lin approached two plain-clothes Bureau of Special Operations officers who were inside 265 N. Broadway, Hicksville on Friday. The defendant offered to sell them DVD movies for $5 each, police said. The officers identified themselves and placed Lin under arrest without incident.

In addition to numerous counterfeit DVDs he had in his possession, hundreds more were found inside his vehicle, police said.

Lin is charged with counterfeiting and two counts of failing to disclose the origin of a recording. He was arraigned on Saturday in First District Court, Hempstead.
