Law enforcement officials from the LA County Sheriff’s Department and HSI were extremely surprised, when they served search warrants on a warehouse location in the City of Los Angeles and came across massive amounts of counterfeit goods. Two subjects were arrested as part of the case and prosecuted federally. Both have since been convicted of trademark counterfeiting.
The subjects were operating a multi-state distribution network and were obtaining their counterfeit items directly from China. The efforts of law enforcement in this matter were outstanding and lead to a huge recovery of counterfeits.
