VEHICLE ACCIDENT LEADS TO COUNTERFEIT MOVIE ARRESTS

Home > Press Page

Thursday, April 15, 2009 — Two individuals were recently arrested for possession of bootleg DVD movies following a one vehicle traffic accident, according to the office of Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart.

   Witnesses informed officers responding to a traffic accident at Route 83 and Main Street in Lemont, that the driver and passenger of the vehicle were throwing something into the nearby ditch.  Upon further investigation, the officer found the suspects dumping what appeared to be movie DVDs into the ditch.  It was later confirmed that the DVDs in their possession were in fact counterfeit copies the individuals had purchased at one flea market with the intention of going to another flea market to re-sell them.

   More than 8,000 DVDs, in several large containers, were confiscated.  Titles of movies recently released and still in theaters, including “Gran Torino”, “Bolt” and “New in Town”, were among those recovered.

   Luis Antonio Narvaez-Estrada, 28, and Juan Bonilla, 50, both of the 1200 block of Jericho Road in Aurora, were each charged with 1 count of Unlawful Use of Unidentified Sound or Audio Recordings.    In addition, Narvaez-Estrada was issued tickets for not having a valid driver’s license and for driving too fast for conditions.

   Narvaez-Estrada and Bonilla each received a $10,000 bond.  Their next court date is April 27.
