According to Yahoo, a large number of Pokémon, Digimon, and Dragon Ball bootlegged toys were captured by Police today.

Apparently illegally imported from China, these toys were seized at Rome's Fiumicino airport.

"The toys were totally unsafe and dangerous for children," a police spokesman said. "The Chinese exporters, with the collaboration of their Italian importers, had fixed 'Made in the European Union' stickers on them."

A 41-year old man has been arrested in conjunction with this case.
