READING, Pa. -

A Reading man and woman, partners in both marriage and business, were also partners in crime, police said.

Fu Wang and Xiu Wang sold bootlegged DVD copies of movies currently playing in theaters and not yet released on home video, police said.

Titles for sale inside the couple's store, Queen's Gift Shop, 414, Penn St., included "Fast & Furious 6," "Oblivion," and "Iron Man 3," according to court documents.

The Wangs' arrests were the result of a Motion Picture Association of America representative making several undercover buys of the bootlegged DVDs inside the store and then notifying police, according to court documents.

Authorities said they found more than 400 counterfeit DVDs and 60 music CDs on display in shoe boxes and for sale inside the store.

The Wangs were charged with trademark counterfeiting - sells and retail recorded device, both felonies. They were each freed on $5,000 bail.
