Police seized hundreds of counterfeit designer items from an Evans home this morning.

More than 500 items were apprehended from 700 Brownsfield Lane near Riverwood Parkway after police received a complaint several days ago and searched the residence about 10:30 a.m. today, said Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

The fake merchandise included purses, wallets, jewelry and other similar items from several designer companies such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel and Coach, Capt. Morris said.

The woman who lives in the home faces charges and was not at home during the search, Capt. Morris said. He was told the woman was traveling home from Atlanta.
