NJ warehouse used to halt spread of fake goods
News 12 New Jersey was given an exclusive tour of a Port Newark warehouse where officials are trying to halt the flow of fake goods across the state. U.S. Customs and Border Protection works with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to identify and seize merchandise that might be counterfeit. Robert Perez, the director of Field Operations for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in New York and New Jersey, says the process can be lengthy and laborious. Among the items being examined in the warehouse are handbags, sneakers, batteries and prescriptions. The facility is one of six in the area that officials use to examine the merchandise.
