The counterfeit goods were hiden under animal supplies.
About sixty thousand reais in counterfeit clothing items were seized by the Federal Highway Police (PRF) in Povoado Carié, a rural area in the municipality of Canapi / AL, last Wednesday (03). The products were replicas of famous brands and were being transported illegally among animal supplies.
A team was conducting inspections in front of the Operational Unit (UOP) of Carié, on BR - 423, and stopped a white / VW box truck with a Pintangui / MG plate. After approaching, the agents requested documentation of the cargo, driver and vehicle. The man showed an invoice stating that he was carrying animal feed and some shoe boxes.
Wary that the material might be drugs and the driver's nervousness, the PRFs decided to check the products and found dozens of boxes containing sneakers from famous brands such as Nike, Adidas and Converse, as well as sandals and counterfeit bags. Questioned, the truck driver informed that he would be coming from Paulo Afonso / BA and would take the counterfeit goods to the state of Pernambuco.
.In view of the facts, all the seized material was taken to the State Secretariat of Finance of Alagoas (Sefaz / AL) for counting, and then passed on to the Civil Police for appropriate procedures.
