U.S. Customs and Border Protection found and seized over 3,500 counterfeit dolls in a rail container at the Canadian border Feb. 6.

If genuine, the dolls would have a suggested retail price of nearly $71,000, according to a news release.

Officers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Field Operations at the International Falls Port of Entry targeted a rail container that was en route to Rainer, Minnesota.

The movement of dolls violated intellectual property rights regulations, the news release read.
