Investigators said the investigation this week led to the seizure of the figurines from a Bourget warehouse, which allegedly supplied the items to about 100 illegal street vendors in Paris, The Local.fr reported Friday.

Police estimated the seized merchandise to be worth $233,000.

The raid also resulted in officers seizing about $206,900 in cash and about $26,500 worth of coins.

Police said a 41-year-old Chinese woman and her 40-year-old brother are suspected of being the ringleaders of the illegal street vending network and were arrested Tuesday. The pair supplied the illegal street vendors with merchandise via their shop in Paris' 3rd Arrondissement.
