Sherrifs to share wealth of skater loot
By GARY P. CARROLL Staff Writer
The Comal County Sherrifs Office received 52 skateboards from the United States Customs Office, Thursday, following the seizure of the skateboards by customs agents in Laredo.
More than 1,000 "copy cat" Ninja Turtle and Bart Simpson skat** boards were confiscated by U.S. Customs after they were found to be in violation of federal trademark regulations. Mirage Studios, holder of the trademarks, agreed to let customs donate the skatboards to charitable organi rations.
Acting Chief Deputy Jim Clifton of the Comal County Sherrifs Department said the skateboards will be given away as a part of the "Green Santa” project, an ongoing project designed to provide charitable organizations with gifts throughout Die year.
"It’s a program where we take our Christmas presents which we give to local families every year and spread it out throughout the year,” Clifton said.
Property seised by Customs can be sold at a public auction, destroyed or donated to charitable organisations, and Clifton said this is the first time the "Green Santa” program has benefited from Customs.
"We’ve been doing this program where we give things away at Christmas for four years," Clifton said, "but as far as us getting anything from Customs this is the first time."
The skateboards can be given to organizations or to individuals, but Clifton said that Sherrif Jack Bremer has not yet made any definite plans for distributing them.
