Agents find 1,400 pairs of counterfeit athletic shoes

Judicial Investigating Organization photo There is little doubt from where the packages came.

After a three month investigation judicial agents Thursday raided a warehouse in San Rafael de Oreamuno, province of Cartago, where they said they found 70 cartons of fake tennis shoes.

The presumed crime is infringing on the rights of an author, in this case the rights of an internationally known U.S. athletic shoe manufacturer.

Judicial agents said they had the help of a person who was an expert in telling a brand name athletic shoe from a knockoff. Each carton contained 20 pairs of shoes, agents said. They estimate that there were 1,400 pairs of misbranded shoes.
