Jackson wants to close 3 stores as nuisances

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- City officials in Jackson seek to padlock three businesses following an undercover investigation into counterfeit and stolen merchandise being sold.

According to The Jackson Sun, the city is trying to close International Fashions, the College Market and the Royal Quick Stop under the public nuisance statute.

Mayor Jerry Gist said two owners of businesses might have left the country. He did not identify them.

The Jackson Police Department raided the businesses on April 30, investigating organized theft and sale of stolen goods.

Police records show officers have been sent to the markets numerous times on a variety of crimes.
