Authorities in Brooklyn last week arrested six people and seized knockoff designer goods having an estimated street value of $20 million in a sting on a counterfeiting ring, which operated as a wholesale showroom for the New York City black market.
As part of the yearlong probe by state and local agencies, investigators from the Kings County district attorney’s office posed as counterfeit sellers at a Stop and Stor storage facility at 534 63rd Street in Sunset Park. Authorities allege the site was used as an organized bazaar where retail buyers could come to view knockoff goods hung for display in one unit and pick up orders by the caseload in another.
