EHT Man Admits to Fake Prize Scam on Wildwood Boardwalk
Two brothers from Egg Harbor Township have now both pleaded guilty to giving bogus prizes to customers who won games of chance at three Wildwood Boardwalk locations.
Evan Strothers, 30, of Egg Harbor Township, pleaded guilty to conspiring to traffic counterfeit goods between 2010 and 2012. His brother Brett Strothers, 35, of Mays Landing, pleaded guilty to the same charge last month according to the Press of Atlantic City.
The men bought 17,000 fake jerseys to give away at three Wildwood Boardwalk arcades. The locations of the gaming stores wasn't released.
As part of the plea agreement, the brothers will give up 7,500 of the bogus jerseys and $100,000, the Justice Department said. They could face ten years in prison or a maximum fine of $2 million.
