Police officers raided a Chinatown gift shop they say was selling fake designer goods.

The state Attorney General's office says the raid was the result of a seven-month undercover operation.

It says the shop was selling brands like Rolex, Prada, Gucci and Oakley, sometimes at less than a tenth of their usual price.

But all the items were fakes.

Police arrested a husband and wife team for operating the store.

The Attorney General's office says they'll be charged with felony trademark counterfeiting and criminal tax fraud.
