Men plead not guilty in counterfeit case

GREENFIELD — Two men pleaded not guilty Monday to charges they face related to an alleged counterfeit merchandising operation discovered last week after a traffic stop in Hancock County.

Ling Jiang, 34, of Illinois, and Fei Qi Zhang, 43, of Florida, were arrested after police found bogus brand-name clothing and electronics in their possession, court records state.

Each man faces felony counts of counterfeiting, corrupt business influence and possession of methamphetamine; and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

The men pleaded not guilty to all counts.
