SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Federal authorities in Puerto Rico have seized about $5 million worth of counterfeit merchandise in an operation dubbed Forged Dreams, Valentine's Blitz.

Officials targeted 15 retailers in several cities along the island's north coast, including the capital of San Juan.

They seized clothes, jewelry, cosmetics, handbags, sunglasses and sportswear in a four-day operation.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement Thursday that 39 trademarks were violated, including Armani, Calvin Klein, Guess, Rolex and Victoria's Secret.
