A Long Island couple have been accused of buying and selling counterfeit goods with a street value of more than $2 million. Suffolk County prosecutors say police on Thursday seized luxury handbags, clothing, shoes and other knockoff merchandise bearing the counterfeit marks of Burberry, Gucci, Coach, Tiffany, Polo, Prada and other companies.

They say the illegal distribution racket operated from a warehouse in Farmingdale. They say a search of the Roslyn home of the couple who operated the warehouse netted $150,000 in cash and financial records.

The husband and wife are scheduled for arraignment Friday on charges of trademark counterfeiting and criminal simulation.
