Smuggling Apparel through Foreign Trade Zone Get Man 45 Month Prison Term

Thanks to Steve Warner of the BeaverLake6 Report for passing on this story.

Sam Herbert Allen Jr., 54 of San Juan Capistrano, California, received a 45 month prison sentence late Monday in U.S. District Court for conspiring with his ex-wife, Wei “Julia” Lai, to smuggle shipments of clothing into the U.S. in exchange for bribes.

Allen was a supervisor that oversaw the examination and release of international cargo that arrived at Foreign Trade Zone, or FTZ, which are privately operated warehouses that perform customs functions under the supervision of CBP. In exchange for falsely showing that the clothing had been exported to Mexico, Allen accepted bribes of $2,000 per shipping container.
