article imageHomeland Security raids boutique and seizes hundreds of panties

By Owen Weldon     Oct 24, 2014 in Crime
Kansas City - On Tuesday two undercover agents from the Department of Homeland Security entered a Missouri women's underwear store and seized hundreds of panties.
According to Fox, Danielle Meister, co-owner of Birdies Panties shop, said the agents took lingerie, claiming that the store violated copyright laws. The underwear that was seized said "Take the Crown" and "KC" across the rear. The design was to honor the baseball team the Kansas City Royals, who are in this year's World Series.
Meister and Peregrine Honig, her business partner, said they just wanted to celebrate their hometown team's success by designing the panties.
According to Yahoo, since the "K" and the "C" was connected, she infringed on Major League Baseball (trademark), even though the design was hand drawn.
Honig signed a statement saying that she would no longer use the logo, and the underwear was placed inside an official Homeland Security bag.
Honig said that the agents were friendly and they were relatively gentle.
According to Consumerist, the crackdown isn't specifically targeted at just one piece of clothing, as officials have been busting counterfeited World Series items, including fame tickets, shirts, baby clothes and even cellphone cases.
A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said that their primary goal is to stop the production or sale of counterfeited items. The spokesman continued to say that the agents are focused on making sure consumers are protected. He also said that you don't want people paying a lot of money for fake items.
