OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Law enforcement officers have raided two dozen Ocean City businesses suspected of trafficking in counterfeit goods.

 

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials conducted the raids on Wednesday, with help from the FBI and state and local police. Authorities confiscated mass quantities of bootlegged and fraudulent merchandise.

 

A lawsuit filed last summer in federal court in Baltimore by luxury handbag maker Coach Inc. says that an investigator for the company entered 13 stores in the city in June and bought counterfeit bags, wallets and other items for prices ranging from $20 to $75.
