Apparently, bloodied zombies and spooky ghouls aren't the only thing that people are wary of on Halloween. After receiving a call about a "suspicious truck" at a Long Island self-storage facility Saturday night, police found two men with $100,000 worth of counterfeit purses. Cops trick or treating and finding two hundred boxes of fake Coach and Louis Vuitton handbags is probably the law-enforcing equivalent to like, five King-Sized Snickers. Jealous! [WSJ]
