SUNSET PARK - Thousands of fake goods were seized from a storage facility in Sunset Park.According to officials, there were more than 100 storage units filled with over 100,000 pieces of counterfeit items -- from Coach to Ed Hardy, to President Obama depicted on fake Nike Airs. Six people were arrested for allegedly using Stop & Stor as their base for operations, taking in shipments from China and selling them wholesale to retailers. Officials say some of the items made it to stores with retailers illegally selling to unknowing customers. The District Attorney's office also seized records and books in the sting operation and says next it will go after the retailers who were purchasing the counterfeit goods.
