NYC Seizes Designer Fakes in Chinatown Valued at More Than $1 Million


NEW YORK — More than $1 million of counterfeit Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Rolex and Coach goods have been seized in an early morning Chinatown raid by the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement.

The raid Tuesday came after a two-month investigation by city officials in the special unit, which was created in 2006 to crack down on trademark counterfeiting and other quality of life violations.

The special enforcement unit includes police, building inspectors and finance inspectors. According to a spokesman for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, investigators made dozens of undercover purchases of illegal goods, including handbags, perfume, clothing and jewelry, in an area known as the “Counterfeit Triangle.”

The area is bounded by Canal, Walker and Centre streets, and consists of 32 stalls and storefront shops.
