The Federal Highway Police (PRF) seized on Tuesday night (17), in Russas, a load of two thousand pairs of counterfeit sneakers. The shoes came from the southeastern region of the country and would be delivered in Fortaleza (CE). Around 10 pm, at kilometer 159 of BR-116, PRF agents approached a truck loaded with 132 footwear boxes, with approximately 2,000 pairs of sneakers of various brands. The driver, a 50-year-old man, did not present the invoice for the goods. In a detailed inspection of the material, the police verified that the models showed signs of counterfeit and consulted the commercial representatives of the brands. They confirmed the suspected forgery. Some of the counterfeit models were copies of shoes that cost up to R$ 400.00.
The truck driver confessed that the material was irregular and would be delivered in Fortaleza. The incident was referred to the Russian Civil Police Station.
