Rolex counterfeiting scam alleged in Johnson County

Jewelry store manager Alisha Moore was suspicious when a man offered to sell a watch that he claimed was a genuine Rolex. Her suspicion became a certainty when he said he had another one in his vehicle. Overland Park police were called, and Moore stalled the man long enough for officers to arrest him. Johnson County prosecutors charged 41-year-old Frank Salvador Alvarado of Chicago with possession with intent to sell counterfeit Rolex watches and attempted felony theft by deception.
