State Troopers Make Unusual Seizure

Wyoming Highway Patrol Troopers made quite a unique seizure this week just outside of Cheyenne on Highway 80. Troopers seized approximately $5.7 million in counterfeit handbags, shoes and other clothing during a routine commercial vehicle inspection. Wyoming Highway Patrol Sergeant Stephen Townsend explains why the counterfeit items were valued so high.

Townsend said that the imported counterfeit designer clothing is believed to have come from a manufacturer in China. The tractor trailer transporting the counterfeit apparel originated at a port in Los Angeles, California and was destined for delivery in New York City.

Townsend stated that the Highway Patrol has requested assistance from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and special agents with ICE will attempt to determine the origin and the final delivery destination of the merchandise.
