Police bust $2 million in iFake products

LOS ANGELES (CNN) - More than $2 million in counterfeit electronics, designed to look like iPhones and iPods, were discovered by Los Angeles police Monday.

Two people were arrested and police expect more arrests as the investigation continues.

The products were made in China and shipped overseas to Los Angeles where they were assembled, packaged and sold at swap meets and flea markets.

Law enforcement officials credited good communication with the success of the bust.

"We have a very layered approach between the federal, state, and local agencies," Port of Los Angeles Police Chief Ronald Boy, said. "If it's not interdicted by customs and border protection, and they do a tremendous job of looking for counterfeit and trademark violations."

The Port of Los Angeles is the largest shipping container port in the country.
