Eighteen-hundred boxes of suspected counterfeit clothing, some allegedly ripping off brands from an Idaho company, have been intercepted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, better known as the Mounties. Law enforcement confirmed that the clothing contained counterfeit images licensed to T.P.O., an Idaho corporation. The bust occurred on Feb. 7.
T.P.O. manufactures and sells clothing through its "Driven" brand, including images of MMA fighting, WWE wrestling and numerous musical acts.
According to a company official, T.P.O. is working with Canadian authorities to prosecute "the intellectual property pirates."
