Six suspects have been nabbed for allegedly producing fake Louis Vuitton mooncakes, Shanghai police said on Friday.

Police raided the gang on Wednesday and seized over 500 boxes of the fake products and over 10,000 unpacked mooncakes claimed to be of the same brand.

The authentic counterparts of the seized products are said to be worth over 1 million yuan (US$155,000).
