WETUMPKA, Ala. -

Federal agents have seized counterfeit goods from a well-known flea market in Alabama.

Early Saturday morning about 100 agents from Homeland Security Investigations, a division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, raided Santuck Flea Market in Wetumpka.

Media reports state $1-2 million dollars worth of items were seized including, handbags, shoes, clothing and electronics that were being sold under counterfeit brand names.

Officials said the bust was the result of a months-long investigation.

The market remained open while agents shut down individual vendors. Goods were collected from about 50 vendors.

The Montgomery Advertiser is reporting that two people have been arrested on immigration charges, but no arrests have been made yet relating to counterfeit goods.
