Officers discovered $700,000 in counterfeit luxury cosmetics being sold for a major discount, some of which tested positive for a "high level of bacterias and animal feces", according to ABC 7 in Los Angeles. Twenty-one stores in the city's Fashion District were raided, leading to the massive confiscation of counterfeit cosmetics. Police Capt. Marc Reina announced the results of the operation Thursday evening on Twitter, adding that the fake cosmetics were "found to contain bacteria and human waste".

Other products seized included knockoff Kylie Cosmetics lip kits from Kylie Jenner's makeup line, prompting a response to the story from her sister, Kim Kardashian. Detective Rick Ishitani of the LAPD told the news station that the cosmetics' price reveals whether it is counterfeit or not.
