Default Nike Smugglers busted

Crackdown on fake Coach bags, Nike sneakers

20 busted in New York-based smuggling ring for counterfeit goods

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tuesday, June 26th 2007, 12:11 PM


Federal authorities arrested more than 20 people on Tuesday in what they described as a massive scheme to smuggle Chinese-manufactured counterfeit clothes and electronics into the United States.

Among the accused were federally licensed brokers who were supposed to make sure freight containers held legitimate shipments. Authorities allege the brokers helped smugglers avoid inspections by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The items included counterfeit Nike sneakers, Coach bags and Timberland boots. The goods were stored in warehouses in Brooklyn and Queens before being sold to tourists in Chinatown and other locations around Manhattan.
