A Bolingbrook man was arrested on charges alleging he sold counterfeit sports jerseys, Lego toys and shoes with rapper Kanye West’s Yeezy brand, according to court records.

About 10 p.m. Sept. 11, Robin G. Huberty, 62, of the 100 block of Rhine Avenue, was booked into the Will County jail on six counts of an unauthorized use of a trademark.

The criminal complaint alleged Huberty “knowingly held for sale” counterfeit athletic jerseys bearing the trademarks of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association and National Hockey League.

The aggregate retail value of the NFL and MLB jerseys ranged from $10,000 to $100,000 and the value of the NBA and NHL jerseys was between $300 and $10,000, according to the complaint.

The complaint also alleges that Huberty held for sale counterfeit toys bearing the trademark of Lego and shoes with the trademark of Yeezy, the shoe brand of West.

The fake Lego toys were worth more than $10,000 but less than $100,000 and the shoes were worth between $300 and $10,000, according to the complaint.

Huberty’s offenses allegedly occurred Wednesday, according to the complaint. The complaint was filed against him Sept. 12 after an investigation by the Will County Sheriff’s Office.

Huberty’s arrest follows an investigation by the sheriff’s office of Robin D. Perry, 72, of The Villages in Florida, who sold counterfeit Yeti brand products at the Will County Fair in Peotone Township, authorities said.
