U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at John F. Kennedy International Airport seized the 935 fake stickers on Luis Jose Cabral after he presented himself for examination by CBP officers.

The counterfeit emission safety stickers and all evidence have been turned over to Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the New York Police Department for prosecution by the Queens County District Attorney’s office.
