Faux market

    Police yesterday raided the popular Rice’s flea market in Bucks County, confiscating $150,000 worth of counterfeit goods. Part of an ongoing investigation, the raid aims to target the big players who are making, selling and profiting from counterfeit items of popular brands.


    Ugg boots and Burberry items were among the most heavily reproduced items being sold at the Solebury market, the Bucks County Courier Times reports. Shipments were reportedly coming in from China and other foreign nations.

    No vendors were arrested n yesterday’s raid as Bucks County detectives and officers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement hope to find and arrest those directly involved with the illegal activity.
