ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) -- Atlanta police say they have busted a ring of retail stores found selling nearly $2 million worth of counterfeit items.
Authorities say officers hauled away bags full of purses, jeans and shoes from six stories Friday night. They found roughly enough counterfeit merchandise to fill a U-Haul truck.
Police say a raid on the West End Market turned up goods being sold under faked labels for brands such as Coach, Ralph Lauren, Izod, Levi and Guess.
Authorities say a member of the public tipped off Atlanta police, which sent investigators to buy the bogus goods to verify they were counterfeits.
