1 min read

MILFORD — A man was arrested Thursday after police found him with approximately $13,000 worth of counterfeit Apple products in his vehicle.

Lucio D’Andrea, 32, of Miami, was taken into custody following a traffic stop at the intersection of Main and South Main streets, where Milford Police Detective Bureau members noticed a black Jeep Renegade with a plate that read “TAG APPLIED FOR.”

The arrest came after law enforcement responded to a report of a suspicious individual near Crystal Nails on East Main Street earlier that day.

The suspect, described as a male in a black jeep with no license plates, had been asking pedestrians if they were interested in purchasing Apple products.

He had left the scene before officers arrived.

D’Andrea is facing multiple charges including unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, illegally attaching number plates, receiving stolen property valued over $1,200, and distributing counterfeit goods.

He was held on $20,000 bail at Milford District Court on Friday morning.
