CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Police arrested the owner of a clothing store in the city following a Tuesday raid.

Cranston police chief, Col. Michael Winquist, told Eyewitness News police exercised a court authorized search warrant at Litt Fashions on Park Avenue.

Winquist said the store was selling counterfeit items and that investigators seized 275 items in the raid, including hats, belts, sunglasses, sweatpants, and fragrances. He said they also seized fake Beats headphones.
