SAN DIEGO (AP) - Officials have seized thousands of counterfeit toys worth $1.6 million along southern California border points.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the toys included more than 2,500 knockoff Barbie dolls, worth $58,500, that were contained in boxes shipped to San Diego in October and November.
At the Otay Mesa border point, agents seized 3,100 battery-operated toy vehicles bearing fake "Jeep" labels in October.
The manufacturer of the toy vehicles, which were designed for kids to drive, did not have permission to use the Jeep trademark.
