The World's Largest Resource for the Cart, Kiosk, and Temporary Retail Industry

St. Clairsville, Ohio—An agency confiscated more than 1,000 items from a local business after it claimed the items were counterfeit.

The Trademark Enforcement Agency served a cease and desist order to Variety Imports inside the Ohio Valley Mall on Friday morning.

Tim Richisson, president of the Trademark Enforcement Agency, said his company, which specializes in hunting down counterfeit goods, confiscated merchandise from a woman who was selling them in a kiosk in the mall.

“There were counterfeit purses,” said Richisson. “…and wallets and jewelry. We think she probably sold thousands of purses there.”

Richisson told NEWS9 when his agency arrived on scene, there was a line of people waiting to buy goods from Variety Imports.

He said many times consumers tip off his agency after they buy a fake good because the items don’t tend to last long.
