Israel: Truck Apprehended Carrying Bogus Name Brand Shoes


mishA truck originating in the Hebron district was apprehended at the al-Zaim Checkpoint carrying thousands of pairs of counterfeit name brand shoes. The truck was driven by an Arab resident of Yerushalayim. The truck was stopped for inspection at the Mishor Adumim industrial area by border police, HaMevaser reports.

Authorities believe the truck passed through the industrial area to give the impression the shoes were manufactured in that location to give an air of legitimacy to the cargo.
