Police say they confiscated about $140,000 in cash and $1.5 million in counterfeit vaping products.Trio Counterfeited More Than $1.5 Million Of Vape Products: NCPD | Patch
Local New York police recently busted three men accused of running a counterfeit ring of vaping products. As the story notes, the cops confiscated a bunch of products and a healthy amount of cash.
What the story didn’t say was exactly what sort of products they were faking.
I’m going to take a wild guess and say that the knockoffs were likely of a company owned by Big Tobacco. After all, people have been knocking off small companies’ products for years and not much has been done about it.
