(KPNX)  A Maricopa, Arizona man was arrested Tuesday after a search warrant led authorities to the heart of a counterfeit airbag-production operation, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

Dwight Smith, 58, is facing criminal counterfeiting charges after being arrested by a joint task-force that involved Phoenix police and agents from the Homeland Security Investigations division of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, police spokesman Officer James Holmes said.

Officials are urging people who think they may have purchased one of the counterfeit airbags to take their vehicle to a licensed dealer and have it replaced immediately, Holmes said.
