STERLING, Va., – If you are waiting on Beats head phones as a special gift for the holidays, your wait just got a little longer. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized 240 of the popular wireless headphones for being counterfeits to the Dr. Dre trademark.

The parcel also contained packaging that suggested the Beats were shipped for resale.  Officers also seized two sweatshirts bearing a counterfeit Dolce & Gabbana trademark. The manufacturer suggested retail price, if authentic, was $18,360 for the headphones and $1,050 for the sweatshirts.
