A raid conducted by a Los Angeles Police Department task force seized $700,000 worth of counterfeit cosmetics Thursday in Downtown L.A.'s Fashion District. "The best price is not always the best deal!"
LAPD's Anti-Piracy Unit began an investigation into the sale of the allegedly counterfeit cosmetics after customers called the actual cosmetic companies complaining of bumps and rashes from the products they had purchased in Santee Alley. Some cosmetics yielded evidence of bacteria, human waste and animal waste, according to LAPD.
"Those feces will just basically somehow get mixed into the product they're manufacturing in their garage or in their bathroom - wherever they're manufacturing this stuff", he continued.
Officials investigating $700,000 of counterfeit cosmetics last week captured from 2 1 stalls at a LosAngeles shopping current market found elevated heights of pee at the makeup and traces of animal feces and bacteria.
The LAPD detective also said that companies must meet health and safety standards, which are often expensive.
While Jenner has stayed quiet on the story, her sister Kim Kardashian took to Twitter with some helpful advice for her fans.
The counterfeit products were uncovered in a raid of 21 stores in the city's Fashion District, notes Los Angeles television station KABC.
Police arrested the owners at six of the raided locations.
