HEMET, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say seven people were arrested and more than $150,000 in illegal knockoffs of handbags, movies, music and more were seized at a Riverside County swap meet.

District attorney’s spokesman John Hall said in a statement Tuesday that prosecutors and several other agencies had been conducting an operation that resulted in the arrests at the swap meet in Winchester Sunday.

Hall says seized items included about 30 handbags with counterfeit labels like Michael Kors and Chanel, 20 sports jerseys, about a dozen Beats by Dre headphones and more than 4,000 CDs and DVDs.

Two people were arrested for selling counterfeit brand-name items and five for illegal copying of video and audio.

Officials also issued 14 citations for non-licensed food sales and destroyed 2,500 pounds of food they called potentially hazardous.
