Nintendo's New York investigators assisted the Hackensack Police, in what turned out to be the biggest counterfeit Pokémon bust to date. Acting on a tip from Wizards of the Coast, officials on November 30 confiscated printing equipment and illegal cards from a New Jersey operation that was estimated to be producing $500,000 worth of bogus product each week. Police also made 13 arrests in connection with the raid. Said Nintendo of America anti-piracy manager Jodi Daugherty, "This criminal action exemplifies Nintendo's policy to combat the growing international problem of product piracy. On behalf of Nintendo, Wizards of the Coast and Pokémon fans everywhere, we congratulate the Hackensack police department on a significant and successful raid."
