On Tuesday, authorities in Nassau County, New York arrested a father and his two sons for a $25 million counterfeit scheme involving bogus luxury purses, watches, and other accessories.

According to the New York Post, Mahmood Nasir, 55, has been charged in the counterfeit scheme after a joint investigation by federal agents and Nassau police led to the discovery of millions of fake goods in his residence, at a storage facility and rental property.

Additionally, his sons, Ramish Nasir, 22, and Rubail Nasir, 18, have each been charged with counterfeiting and conspiracy.

The fake accessories were decorated with brand-names such as Rolex, Burberry, Hublot, Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton.

Feds say the conniving trio imported the millions in fake goods from China through JFK Airport, and would then resell the counterfeit items to bootleg retailers in Manhattan.
