LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Police say one of the first clues the Nike shoes might be fake was the logo of Michael Jordan. The former NBA star had too many fingers, an officer wrote in his report.

WSB-TV reports that the image and other tips led Gwinnett County police to seize 78 pairs of Nike sneakers that authorities contend are counterfeit.

Police say they were questioning two South Carolina women they say were traveling with the shoes when police stopped their Pontiac Grand Prix on Interstate 85 northeast of Atlanta on Saturday.

Aside from Michael Jordan’s six fingers, investigators said the serial numbers on the shoe’s tongue did not match the numbers on the box. Officers said they could peel the Nike logos right off what appeared to be Nike Air Jordans.
