400 counterfeit items found in sting 

Following a four-month investigation, Burlingame police confiscated 400 pieces of counterfeit designer items from Nicky's European Fashion, police said.

Investigators from Investigative Consultants — a private investigation firm that represents fashion design companies such as Bulgari, Chanel, Christian Dior, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Rolex — and Burlingame police made several undercover purchases from the shop.

The purchased items were confirmed to be counterfeit and police detectives and investigators returned to the store Saturday, seizing handbags, wallets, jewelry, watches, sunglasses and clothing items.

The San Mateo County District Attorney's Office will review the results of the investigation and determine if the store's owners and employees will be prosecuted for the intentional sale of counterfeit goods, police said.
