SANDUSKY, Ohio — Police stumbled on more than a thousand bootlegged movies last week and will soon level criminal charges against the man who’s allegedly turning them for profit.

Rodney Hicks, 47, 800 block Hancock St., is facing a fifth-degree felony charge of criminal simulation.

Sandusky officers pulled Hicks over on Eddy Henry Way the evening of Jan. 24 after noticing he had a Texas license plate fastened on his front bumper and an Indiana plate attached to the rear.

Hicks allowed officers to search his car, but what they uncovered wasn’t the usual haul. They found a duffel bag packed with 1,029 burned DVDs of various movie titles, all stacked and sorted on disc spindles, Sandusky police Sgt. Dana Newell said.
