Deputies Find $250K in Counterfeit Sports Jerseys, Caps in California
Deputies seized an estimated $200,000 to $250,000 worth of counterfeit sports jerseys and baseball caps from a store in El Monte, Calif., last week. The merchandise included Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim jerseys.
Deputies also detained one person.
The sheriff’s Counterfeit and Piracy Enforcement Team, along with the Homeland Security Investigations' Intellectual Property Rights team, served a search warrant Thursday morning at TNS Tattoo Supply on the 9800 block of Garvey Ave. The store sign lists what the business sells: tattoo supplies, hats, concert shirts and soccer jerseys, as well as jerseys from the MLB, NFL and NBA.
