71 year old Korean found with almost 40,000 fake Erectile Dysfunction pills at Los Angeles International Airport
16th March 2012
A 71 year old Korean ex- law enforcement official has been arrested by Homeland Security agents, charged with trafficking approximately $700,000 worth of counterfeit erectile dysfunction drugs. This incredible valuation was confirmed in a statement released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Kil Jun Lee, who currently resides in Los Angeles, was detained by authorities at LAX Airport initially on 25 February after returning from a trip to his native homeland. Upon a routine search of his luggage, officers discovered almost 40,000 fake pills that were hidden inside aluminium foil packets within his golfing bag. Lee was quizzed about the drugs and he admitted that he had a heart condition and they were not for his own use and could actually kill him if he took them himself. In this latest haul of counterfeit medicine, 29,827 fake Viagra pills were found, 8,933 fake Cialis pills, and 793 fake Levitra pills. Lab tests were subsequently carried out on the phony tablets and absolutely none were found to contain the genuine ingredients.  As we reported last month, the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit medication is on the increase Worldwide and is creating huge health risks to those unfortunate enough to come into their possession and use them.

Commenting on the latest in a growing number of drug seizures at LAX, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice told the Los Angeles Times:  'The trafficking of pharmaceuticals is a growing problem,' 'Because these pills are in demand, and people realize money is to be made, people are trying to smuggle them in so they can sell them. We write about issues like this because we want to raise awareness of using these impostor medications they pose safety risk,' she added.
