HANOVER, Md. (AP) -- Maryland State Police say raids at Arundel Mills Mall turned up hundreds of counterfeit Apple products for sale at a store and kiosk.

Police say troopers served search warrants at the Cyberion store and the ST Tech Pros kiosk last week and found hundreds of counterfeit Apple products being sold as authentic factory replacements. Police estimate the value of the items recovered total more than $89,000.

Police say the items include two dozen counterfeit iPhones, parts replacement screens, product ID stickers and conversion kits. They also found counterfeit packaging materials and computer equipment believed to be used to clone phones.

Investigators will present their investigation to the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office to determine whether charges should be filed. No arrests have been made.
