INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Authorities say they’ve found more than $1 million worth of counterfeit merchandise in an Indianapolis storage unit that they suspect a gang was using to receive and distribute items across the U.S.

WISH-TV in Indianapolis (https://bit.ly/1jXvFjZ ) reports authorities discovered counterfeit UGG gloves, North Face jackets and Beats by Dre headphones plus illegal drugs and other items in one unit. The discovery led them to several more units at another storage facility, where they found more than 300 boxes of similar counterfeit items.

The investigation began when a Hancock County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over a vehicle for a traffic violation and discovered hundreds of pairs of counterfeit UGG gloves.

Two men - 43-year-old Fei Qi Zhang and 34-year-old Ling Jiang - were arrested on counterfeiting and drug possession charges.
