PERRYSBURG, Ohio (AP) — Ohio state troopers say a routine traffic stop uncovered nearly $2 million in furs that had been brought to the country unlawfully.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol on Thursday said troopers stopped a van for speeding last week on Interstate 80 in Wood County, near Toledo. The van had New York registration.
Authorities say troopers found nearly a dozen boxes containing more than 450 furs.
Federal customs officials have confirmed that the furs were imported unlawfully.
There have been no arrests reported.
