Detective accused of selling fake Ugg, North Face items

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -A Murfreesboro police detective is accused of selling fake products to her own colleagues.
Detective Sgt. Amy Dean is suspected of soliciting other Murfreesboro police employees to buy items like Ugg boots and North Face jackets she knew were counterfeit.

In police dispatch recordings from November, Det. Dean is heard taking to another employee about a pair of black Ugg boots.

Investigators confronted Dean and asked if the boots were real.

She responded she didn’t know but quickly said no when asked if she represented them otherwise.

Throughout the interview, police said Dean denied knowing the merchandise was not real, saying she received it from someone in Knoxville.

“I think it’s safe to say her supervisor in the department expected more from her,” Kyle Evans, spokesperson for the Murfreesboro Police Department, told Nashville’s News 2.

He continued, “Law enforcement officials, especially this time of year, are warning consumers to watch out for counterfeit things and fraudulent items.  The last place you expect to see these show up is a police department and certainly not being sold by a supervisor.”

Internal affairs recommended Dean be demoted to patrol officer and removed from the criminal investigators division.

Dean is still working as a detective until her appeal, which will be heard by Murfreesboro Police Chief Glenn Chrisman on January 9.
