News City: Raids in Oldtown
By Cerridwen Stucky [ Thu Oct 29 2015 2:23 PM ]
According to a press release from the US Department of Justice the raids in Old Town yesterday and today have come to an end. Three New Mexicans were arrested for the alleged crime of violating the Indian Arts and Crafts Act, which prevents any person from falsely advertising non-Native made jewelry as Native made. The owners of Gallery 8 and Galleria Azul had allegedly been passing off jewelry made in the Philippines as Indian made. Thirteen warrants were released for various cities in New Mexico and California. Many New Mexico cities were searched, including Santa Fe, Zuni, and Gallup. While two of the perpetrators were found in Albuquerque the other was apprehended in California.
