NEW YORK — Only hours before Louis Vuitton hosted its Thursday night gala at the Brooklyn Museum to draw attention to the evils of counterfeiting, investigators and New York City police officers carried out a raid of a Queens warehouse that turned up an estimated $5.5 million in fake handbags and sneakers.
Thousands of handbags bearing the Burberry, Chanel, Coach, Fendi, Kate Spade, Gucci and Prada labels were confiscated during a raid at 129-02 Northern Boulevard in the Corona section of Queens on Thursday afternoon. In addition, a cache of Nike-labeled footwear and Bathing Ape-labeled jogging suits was discovered.
