Custom Raid Nets $2.6 Millilon--not in Drugs, in Eyewear

“Customs has seized millions of dollars worth of fake sunglasses and reading glasses arriving from China,” according to a post on KABC Television's website. “ US Customs and Border Protection, also known as the CBP, seized nearly 10,000 pairs of counterfeit Givenchy sunglasses and 3,600 Giorgio Armani reading glasses at the Port of Los Angeles Feb. 2.” Those 13,600 pieces were valued at $2.6 million. The news show reported that “counterfeit glasses could be a danger to customers since they can shatter, cause eye injury, and may fail to provide UV protection.”
