(Cincinnati, Oh.) – Over 9,000 counterfeit jewelry items have been confiscated in Cincinnati.

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials confiscated items from a shipment originating in China on April 27.

The shipment was for McAllen, Texas.

According to CBP officials, if the 9,377 pieces of jewelry had been real, they would have been worth more than $ 4.2 million.

However, the declared value was only $ 119.

“Intellectual property theft harms the US economy and threatens the safety, health and safety of the American people,” said Richard Gillespie, port director of Cincinnati. “Our officials are committed to protecting the private sector and consumers, and ensuring that legal trade continues to fuel our economy.”
