(Memphis) We found Marcu McCrary with a Michael Kors handbag stashed in the back of his trunk.

He said his girlfriend bought it from someone, but he wouldn't say who or whether it was real.

“You can find them anywhere, they're everywhere,” said McCrary

Undercover officers found them at the Rainbow Gas Express on Summer Avenue.

According to police documents WREG uncovered, officers bought several of the phony Kors and Coach handbags from 30-year old Merium Hussein at the store.

“Memphis is a city of hustlers. They hustle all the time trying to get money,” said Mc Crary.

McCrary is not the only one who says you can find counterfeit name brand items as easy as you can find a gallon of gas.

“Sometimes they will approach you and make you know they have them,” said Tamera Hayes.

She said it's not a surprise to her they were being sold at the gas station, but she was shocked by how much money police said the woman was making.

Hussein had more than $16,000 in cash on hand when she was arrested.

As for McCrary we asked if he would buy another purse from a gas station, he responded, “It depends if it's close to Valentine’s Day.”
