Federal agents today said they seized more than half-a-million dollars' worth of counterfeit merchandise at the Rogers, Ohio, flea market on July 25.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents raided more than a dozen vendors at the Rogers Community Auction and seized thousands of knock-off items, including pro football jerseys, batteries, electronics and mobile phone accessories.

All were being sold as designer merchandise but were imitation, ICE said.

The raid was part of a nationwide effort by law enforcement to crack down on counterfeit goods.
