A man from Rio Rancho, New Mexico, is facing charges of music piracy after police uncovered over 20,000 bootleg CDs. Police have charged 49-year-old Donald Wands with unauthorized recording, felon in possession of a firearm, intimidation of a witness and required labelling, all of which are felonies, after being placed under arrest on the 19th of December.
Police investigating a major music piracy scheme executed a warrant and found over 800 original CDs as well as the 20,000 plus bootleg CDs and duplication equipment. Sgt Nicholas Onken believes that the scale of the operation indicates that Wands has been engaged in selling the pirate CDs for quite some time.
