Dougherty County - Police raid an Albany flea market and seize hundreds of illegally made movies and CD's. 5 people were arrested in the raid at Kitty's Flea Market on Sylvester Road Saturday morning.

Officers seized nearly 2,000 bootlegged CD's, DVD's, and VHS movies. The five suspects were handcuffed, arrested, and taken to jail as crowds of shoppers watched in surprise.

"They even had 'Passion of the Christ' already on DVD and video cassette for purchase. They had movies out in the theaters right now, and even some movies that haven't made it to the theater," said Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges.

Police also confiscated 3 vehicles as well as electronics. A few vendors ran off when police showed up, but Hodges says authorities will be back. Piracy is a felony. Buying bootlegged products is also a crime.
