The RCMP have made a second seizure of fake Jets jerseys.
The RCMP said this morning that 190 counterfeit Jets jerseys were seized Saturday in a joint operation with the Canadian Border Services Agency.
Previously, police had seized 40 jerseys August 31.
The RCMP said the jerseys in the second seizure had been made in China and shipped to Winnipeg. The retail value is estimated to be more than $76,000.
The RCMP said the seized jerseys are poor copies of the official Jets jersey, with the names of players in both home and away colors.
No arrests have been announced and the investigation is continuing.
