ICE seizes suspected fakes, arrests 4 in Denver

DENVER, Colorado ” Immigrations officials say federal agents seized more than 1,600 items believed to be counterfeits from seven kiosks near the 16th Street Mall in Denver this week.

The Downtown Denver Partnership says none of the products were being sold on the mall itself.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday that agents seized 922 handbags, 469 pairs of sunglasses, 244 wallets and miscellaneous clothing accessories Tuesday.

ICE says the goods carried high-end brand names. Investigators say they may have been made in China.

ICE officials say four vendors suspected of violating immigration rules were arrested. ICE says three are citizens of Senegal and one is from Burkina Faso. Their names weren’t released.
