The NYPD has arrested two people and confiscated thousands of counterfeit electronics worth nearly $1 million on the street.

Police say they executed a warrant at the Lower Manhattan location on Thursday. They recovered 4,200 pairs of fake Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, 500 counterfeit iPhones and iPods and 19 fake iPads.

Police identified the suspects as Mo Ling and Cindy Lie. They charged them with trademark counterfeiting.

Police say the warrant was the result of an arrest they made last month. They say Iaron Baskerville was arrested on Jan. 31 and charged with possession of a forged instrument. They say he was observed leaving the location with a fake iPhone which he then attempted to sell.
