U.S. customs agents bust pirated shipment of shades at Pembin
PEMNINA, N.D. - The future's not bright for a load of shady shades seized by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Pembina, N.D.
The counterfeit sunglasses, worth $122,043 on the retail market to unaware customers, will be destroyed, to protect the value of authentic brands, said Chris Misson, spokesman for the Pembina customs office.
"It's not common for us to see this kind of thing," he said.
