NEW YORK — Seizing $200 million in fake goods, Federal officials here on Wednesday broke up what they called one of the largest-ever counterfeit smuggling rings for apparel, shoes and accessories.
The products seized included items labeled Chanel, Nike, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren and Baby Phat. Federal officials in Manhattan arrested and arraigned 10 people on Wednesday, including a licensed Customs broker. The busts occurred after a one-year investigation that included an undercover agent. The goods were discovered in more than 100 shipping containers packed full of cases of fake sneakers, handbags, jeans and other apparel.
