Store Raided, $1M Worth of Stolen Clothing Confiscated: MDPD

Authorities raided a clothing store in Allapattah Thursday.

The store, El Encanto Import & Export Inc., is located near 20th Street and Northwest 22nd Avenue.

According to Miami-Dade Police, this was a multi-agency operation. Authorities discovered more than $1 million worth of stolen and counterfeit property.

Police said an organized crime task force arrived at the store around 11 a.m.

Miami-Dade Police are leading the investigation, but investigators from ICE, Homeland Security, Coral Gables Police and Miami Gardens Police are all working together.

They spent much of the afternoon taking out dozens of boxes from the business.

A lieutenant on the scene said some of the confiscated brands included Victoria Secret, Express, Abercrombie, Michael Kors and Nike.

Police said the owner was arrested and charged with dealing with stolen property and counterfeit goods.
