LOS ANGELES (AP) - Officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Environmental Protection Agency say they’ve intercepted more than 700 vehicles and parts that violated U.S. environmental law.

The two agencies plan on Thursday to showcase hundreds of the all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles and engines they seized in a 90-day pilot partnership that recently concluded.

The groups said in a statement that some of the 730 intercepted items were sent back and others were seized.

They said the task force resulted in a significant reduction in harmful air emissions.

The agencies did not immediately say where the vehicles and parts came from, or whether anyone will face criminal charges for trying to import them.
