INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MN — A large amount of counterfeit merchandise has been seized along the International Falls port of entry.

U.S Customs and Border patrol officers targeted several rail cars which were destined to arrive in Ranier, Minnesota.

Inside those containers were 50 amplifiers, 662 cartons of earbuds, 57 cartons of sandwich boards and touch lamina.

The counterfeit merchandise has been valued at $715,868.

“CBP is focused on identifying and intercepting counterfeit merchandise and products. The enforcement of trade laws at U.S. ports of entry remains a high priority for us,” Anthony Jackson, the International Falls Port Director, said in a statement.”Counterfeiting adversely affects the ability of lawful copyright holders to profit from their original ideas. Counterfeiting also harms consumers because manufacturers of forged products have little motivation to use safe, high-quality materials in their products.”
