Makeup seized in $700000 raid contained feces

Cosmetic brands

Captain Marc Reina, Commanding Officer of LAPD's Central Division, tweeted details and photos from the raid, adding, "The best price is not always the best deal!"

LAPD recently seized $700,000 worth of counterfeit makeup from the Los Angeles Fashion District, and the results were far from pretty.

The makeup being sold as counterfeit included brands such as Anastasia, MAC and Kylie - the cosmetics line of the reality TV star Kylie Jenner.

Los Angeles Police said Saturday that some counterfeit cosmetics were contaminated with human waste.

"If you're getting something that's 50 percent off, 75 percent off - it tells you that it's bad", Ishitani told KABC. They were tipped off by numerous complaints from people duped into buying the fake makeup.

After receiving a tip from name-brand companies, who received complaints about the counterfeit products causing rashes and other intense reactions, cops raided 21 different locations in Santee Alley, a Los Angeles fashion district.

One detective said the price tells you if a product is real or not. Caught off guard when the customers said they purchased the beauty products in Santee Alley, the Anti-Piracy Unit went undercover to test the products.

Six of the store owners were arrested by local law enforcement. Another 15 people were given cease and desist orders.

The cosmetics seized during that bust were tested and officials found high levels of bacteria, including traces of animal feces and urine.
