3,500 Fake Items Worth $425,000 Seized At Ala. Flea Market

BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) — Officers have seized 3,500 counterfeit items with a retail price of $425,000 from a flea market in Jefferson County.

A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says federal, state and local law enforcement targeted 35 vendors Saturday at the Bessemer Flea Market. Some of the seized items included counterfeit CDs, DVDs and sportswear.

Special agent Raymond Parmer said counterfeit products cost law-abiding Americans their jobs by depriving legitimate businesses of sales.
