In November 2015, the men shipped from China to the U.S. individual, two packages containing a total of eight counterfeit ICs, each bearing a counterfeit Xilinx brand label. After further discussions between the men and the U.S. individual, the men flew together from China to the U.S. in early December 2015 to complete the Xilinx ICs purchase. On December 10, 2015, the three conspirators drove to a location near Route 95 in Milford, Connecticut, where they planned to meet the U.S. individual, make payment, and take custody of the Xilinx ICs. Federal agents arrested all three at the meeting location.
