(Las Vegas, NV) — Local and federal authorities have seized hundreds of counterfeit sports items in Las Vegas as part of a nationwide crackdown.

Nearly 600 knockoff jerseys, shirts and hooded sweatshirts with logos from MLB, the NFL and the NBA were seized from two kiosks in downtown this week, as well as a variety of tools including powertools, logging hardware and hydraulic torque wrenches. Two arrests have been made.

The seizure is part of “Operation Red Zone”, which leads up to the Super Bowl a week from Sunday.
