Western wear store investigated by Feds over labels

 

Western saddle and western wear store Teskey’s Saddle Shop was raided by federal agents on Wednesday investigating allegations over the labeling of imported goods, according to store officials.
The Weatherford store was closed Wednesday while agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations agency served a federal search warrant. There were also reports that agents came to Teskey’s Fort Worth location, but it was operating as usual Wednesday. Both locations are now open.


Teskey’s owners posted a note on their Facebook site:
"The rumors are flying which is very disappointing. We want to clear up any questions. The investigation is being done by customs agents which are a part of homeland security. They are investigating a violation of the law Marking of Imported Articles 19 USC 1304. There are no other violations. It's unfortunate to hear about the rumors of drugs and tax evasion which are absolutely untrue. We have been an upstanding business and upstanding people in our community since the day we opened our doors. We appreciate all of our friends & their support with spreading the truth and not the rumors. Thank you!!"


ICE officials said that due to the continuing nature of the investigation, no information would be released at this time.
