NEWS / CBP Officers at Port of New York/Newark Seize Stun Guns, Brass Knuckles, Switchblades


amaica, N.Y. – Smugglers attempted to send 100,000 stun guns, brass knuckles, and switchblade knives which they tried to misrepresent as hats, CDs, and bag hardware through the Port of Newark. On January 4, Customs and Border Protection officers in the Port of New York/Newark intercepted the packages which originated in China and were bound for Flushing, N.Y.


CBP officers had selected several shipping containers for examination, when they discovered numerous packages of stun guns, brass knuckles, switchblade knives. These items were seized not only because they posed a threat to public safety, but also violate intellectual property right laws, the “Switchblade Act,” and various other import laws.

“This seizure demonstrates the continued vigilance of our CBP officers,” said Robert E. Perez, director of Field Operations for the New York Field Office. “CBP officers in the greater New York area are committed to intercepting any threat to public safety.”


The items seized had a domestic value of nearly $250,000. The case is pending further investigation.
