CBP Officers at JFK International Airport Seize Counterfeit Sports Championship Rings

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at John F. Kennedy International Airport have seized counterfeited professional sports championship rings.

On July 7, CBP officers seized two separate shipments of counterfeit major league sports championship rings. This seizure of 144 rings in two separate shipments, 84 and 60 respectively, intercepted by CBP officers at JFK would have had a combined M.S.R.P. of $216,000 USD ($126,000 and $90,000) if they were actually legitimate.

“CBP Officers are protecting the American public from various dangers on a daily basis,” said Troy Miller, Director of CBP’s New York Field Operations. “The interception of these counterfeit professional sports championship rings is a direct reflection of the vigilance and commitment to mission success by our CBP officers daily.”

This investigation is ongoing and there have been no arrests at this point.
