The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and Homeland Security says they seized about 60,000 counterfeit items on Saturday.

Purses, clothing, jewelry and more were allegedly taken from nearly 50 vendors.

Agents say the merchandise retails at about $2-million dollars.

Officials say first time offenders will often get cease and desist letters, but repeat offenders could be prosecuted.

An investigation spanning months led up to the raid.

We have attended Santuck for many years. This is not the first time law enforcement has done a raid there, and sadly I don't think it will be the last. I wanted to point out that the owners of both venues at Santuck were not only not complicit but very helpful that day. It's a shame that wrong doers mess up an event for many people
