Earlier this month, customs officers working at the International Falls Port of Entry targeted a rail container destined for Ranier. They inspected the container and found more than 7,700 rocket copters.

The agency said that the merchandise has counterfeit trademark violations, and therefore, it was seized. 

The merchandise would have retailed at over $116,000.

Stopping the flow of illicit goods is a priority trade issue for Customs and Border Protection, according to a statement from the agency.
