Federal agents raid antique auto meet in Hershey

Federal agents raided the Antique Automobile Club of America's Fall Meet in Hershey.

Homeland Security agents confiscated suspected counterfeit auto parts, electronics, and apparel from vendors.  They said they'll investigate to see if the vendors knew they were selling knock-offs.

“We don't want to criminalize a legitimate effort or an attempt to sell counterfeit items by accident,” said agent John Fox. “So if the seller has a few items we may educate them on the items and take them.  If a seller is 100 percent counterfeit it's hard to reflect their innocence.”

So far no one has been arrested or charged with a crime.
