Mafia driven workshops dedicated  to creating  counterfeit designer goods with  high-line labels like  Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Fendi have been dismantled  near  Naples, Italy’s finance police said Wednesday.

Police say they seized as many as 120,000 fake items from workshops operated by 11 suspects supposedly connected  to the Camorra mafia organization

The investigation started at street level, with vendors selling knock-off purses, sunglasses, and other fake items bearing designer labels.

From there, investigators  traced the supply chain back to sweatshops that were found producing clothing and footwear, reports  Ansa News
