the great fake shoe bust

Asians Behaving Badly... knockoff Nike edition! This week in New Jersey, police busted four guys who were apparently trying to move 15,000 pairs of counterfeit Nike sneakers into a storage facility: 15,000 pairs of Nikes were counterfeit, cops say. That's a lot of fake shoes.

A police patrol came across Xian Liu, Hai Zhou, Xiao Chen and Quian Geng unloading a cargo container into a storage unit. Upon investigation, they discover lots and lots and lots of fake Nike brand sneakers in large boxes shipped from China. Police also seized $13,000 from Chen.

The estimated street value of the sneakers is about $1.4 million. My question is, what are they going to do with all the shoes after they no longer need them for evidence? Don't be surprised if a few pairs go missing from evidence room. After all, Christmas is just around the corner.
