Homeland Security Busts Decatur Counterfeit Merchandiser
DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – Homeland Security investigators started the search for counterfeit merchandise early this morning on 2nd St. in Decatur.
The public information officer with Homeland Security tells us they first served a federal search warrant.
The counterfeit merchandise we’re talking about here are things like clothing and handbags. Officers spent all morning taking boxes out of the building.
It’s still unclear how much merchandise was seized. Homeland Security says the stolen goods total around $400 thousand.
This designer deceit has been a growing problem for years now around the valley.
