EAST POINT, GA (CBS46) -

Local and federal officers made a major counterfeit goods bust on Thursday.

East Point Police said four storefronts in a The Shops at Greenbriar plaza were actually fronts for selling illegal items including purses, wallets and shoes.

They said if the goods were legitimate the value would be more than $10 million.

Officers investigated for a month and moved in after making undercover buys of the goods. Knock-off purses were sold for $30 instead of the designer price of $5,000.

Atlanta police also conducted an undercover bust. They served three warrants at the Greenbriar Discount Mall. Officers found counterfeit Prada and Channel items, as well as counterfeit CDs and DVDs. The estimated value was over $400,000.

Atlanta Police officers arrested two people, Alex Kyaw, 24, and Min Bang, 24 on federal charges.

East Point Police arrested four people on federal charges.
