Guam - Nine people face federal charges, accused of smuggling in millions of dollars worth of counterfeit goods into the United States from China and Malaysia. The undercover federal investigation began in 2008. The nine people charged each had a role in brining in the counterfeit goods, which included Coach, Gucci, Cartier and Nike and then selling them for profit.

According to the indictment, filed in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the millions of dollars worth of fake high end items were shipped to locales such as Maryland, New York, New Jersey and the United Kingdom. The indictment added that several meetings were held in Guam with some of the co-conspirators to arrange the shipment of counterfeit items into the United States. 

The nine indicted are Wai Hong Yong (aka, "Raymond Yong"), Eng Cheng Kee, Hexing Yang (aka, "Marco Yang"), Josephine O. Zhou, Chang Hong Xu, Kai T. Jaing (aka, "Kent"), Lidan Zhang (aka, "Mrs. Li"), and Yenn-Kun Hsieh (aka, "Jimmy Lee").

Two of the accused - Kee and Yang - have recently entered plea agreements.  Both are scheduled to appear before District Court of Guam Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan on August 25.
