SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Murray businessman was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of selling fake Rolex and Cartier watches over the Internet.

Daniel Kahle Weilacher also is accused of selling fake Oakley and Ray-Ban sunglasses. He was indicted Wednesday on two counterfeit-trafficking counts and three of engaging in monetary transactions with proceeds derived from unlawful activity.

Prosecutors say Weilacher was generating as much as $68,000 in monthly sales of counterfeit watches and sunglasses.

No telephone listing could be found for Weilacher or his registered business, United Research.

The businessman's Web site, www.thebestreplicas.com, hints at the quality of his merchandise. It offered a Web link to supposed Rolex watches for as little as $108 on Friday.

Weilacher was summoned to appeal in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City on Sept. 17.
