YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A New York man awaits sentencing for trafficking in counterfeit goods after pleading guilty in U.S. District Court in Youngstown.

On Thursday, a judge accepted the plea of 30-year-old Man Zhang, who was indicted by a federal grand jury in April.

State troopers stopped Zhang's van on the Ohio Turnpike in March and discovered that he was wanted on two felony warrants for counterfeiting.

A search of Zhang's van turned up 252 counterfeit purses, 55 counterfeit pocket books, 80 pairs of counterfeit Dr. Dre Beats headphones, 204 bottles of counterfeit perfume, 292 counterfeit t-shirts and sweatshirts, 240 counterfeit hats, and 582 pairs of counterfeit sunglasses.

The items were valued at an estimated $327,000.
