Dayum!

Federal authorities made one helluva haul during a six-week sting operation dubbed "Operation Holiday Hoax".

The majority of the 327,000 items seized in the US, Mexico and South Korea were counterfeit fashion items like Jimmy Choo, Rolex, Uggs, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Prada and Coach valued at $76.8 million.

In Los Angeles alone, the feds took $4 million worth of merchandise with fake True Religion products making up 70% of the seizure.

So far, no one has been arrested, but deputy special agent in charge of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Kevin Kozak expects arrests will be made once they find those who are responsible for manufacturing, importation and distribution.
