NEW ORLEANS (AP) — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have seized more than 50 counterfeit Super Bowl tickets destined for New Orleans.

ICE officials say the fake tickets were seized Friday during a traffic stop. ICE declined to say where the traffic stop was.

ICE officials say the investigation is continuing.

ICE Director John Morton cautioned people this week to only purchase tickets from NFL-authorized sources.

Morton says ICE will aggressively investigate and prosecute counterfeit merchandise cases.
