Counterfeit electronics were among a $400,000 haul of fake goods seized in Detroit, reports Detroit News.

The report says, “U.S. Customs and Border Protection discovered multiple purported Bluetooth products including headphones valued at about $325,000, smart bands valued at $59,000 and various speakers valued at more than $4,000.”
