A North County man faces a criminal charge of selling bootleg DVDs from the parking lot of a Florissant convenience store.
Richard Cheney, 54, of the 1200 block of Springhurst Drive north of Florissant, was charged with sale of unauthorized recordings, a felony.
Florissant Police said they received a report of a man selling bootleg movies out of the back of his SUV Sept. 22 in the Grandview Convenience Food and Liquor parking lot at 1711 Dunn Road. When they arrived, they found the man inside the store.
A clerk at the store told police he bought about 40 DVDs, paying $25 for the movies, in an attempt to get Cheney to leave the store. He said Cheney was being pushy and disruptive in seeking to sell the movies to customers and the clerk.
Florissant Police said they found about 3,000 bootleg DVDs in Cheney’s vehicle.
Cheney posted a $10,000 bond on Jan. 31 and was released from St. Louis County jail.
