LAPD Seizes $700000 Worth of Bootleg Makeup, Some Contained Animal Feces

Counterfeit makeup seized during an LAPD raid in the Fashion District

Los Angeles police confirmed they confiscated $700,000 worth of bootleg cosmetics containing animal feces, human waste and bacteria.

The fake products included brands such as Kylie Jenner's Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay, MAC and NARS.

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!"

One detective said the price tells you if a product is real or not.

"If you're getting something that's 50 percent off, 75 percent off - it tells you that it's bad", Ishitani told KABC.

"Counterfeit Kylie lip kits seized in LAPD raid test positive for feces". Ishitani said the only way some people find out is when they open the product, which isn't allowed at the businesses in Santee Alley. Police also tested the cosmetics seized on Thursday and found high levels of bacteria and animal feces. She then advised buyers of the cosmetics line to "never buy counterfeit products!" He explained this kind of contamination simply wouldn't happen with legitimate products because they're manufactured in proper facilities that adhere to safety standards.

The six people arrested in Thursday's raid will likely be charged with trademark violations of major brands, according to KTLA. The rest were issued cease-and-desist orders.
