Dougherty County -- The manager of an East Albany flea market, raided by Sheriff's Investigators Saturday, says he is taking steps to keep criminals out.   Deputies seized thousands of dollars worth of counterfeit goods like DVD's and CD's at Kitty's Flea Market. They took warrants for the arrest of nine vendors.

Kitty's Manager Jimmy Andrews was not charged, and met with Sheriff's Officials to get tips on how to spot pirated or counterfeit goods.

But he says it's impossible to check all the wares of more than 300 vendors. "If somebody is selling counterfeit stuff, obviously I don't want them out here. I'm glad they got them out of here. We don't want them out here. We don't want anything illegal out here,"  said Andrews.  

Kitty's Flea Market has been run by Andrews family for 21 years, and thousands of customers visit their vendors every weekend. Andrews said they are upgrading the Flea Market now, and will be watching the vendor's goods more closely this Saturday, when they open again.
