Potomac man charged with selling bootleg videos

October 25, 1994

County police arrested a Potomac man Saturday morning for selling suspected bootleg videos at a flea market on Brumwell Field at the corner of Mountain Road and Broadway, authorities said.

Thomas Waligora, an employee of the Motion Picture Association of America, bought a suspected bootleg "Cinderella" tape from a vendor at the flea market about 10:30 a.m., authorities said. He called police, who arrived at the flea market and watched as Mr. Waligora bought a suspected bootleg "Snow White" video from the man for $10, police said.

The officers arrested the vendor and seized his 263 videos. The titles of the videos were varied. Dennis Supik, another MPAA employee, took five of them -- "On Deadly Ground," "Philadelphia," "The Inkwell," "Aladdin" and "Jurassic Park" -- to be electronically tested to see if they had been copied, police said.

Satnam Singh, 36, of the 11000 block of Seven Locks Road was charged with selling unauthorized copies of home videos, police said.
