The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they intercepted a package that lead them to a warehouse filled with blister packs of counterfeit erectile dysfunction pills, and boxes used to prepare them for resale.

The estimated total value of the seized counterfeit drugs exceeds one million dollars, police said in a statement.

Also seized was more than five million dollars worth of clothing and accessories with labels such as Armani, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Adidas, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, MAC cosmetics, Coty Perfume, Tiffany and Links of London jewelry and True Religion Jeans.

Authorities told AFP the counterfeit goods came from China.

Only one person was charged with possession of property obtained by crime.

However, RCMP Inspector Todd Gilmore said: "Criminal organizations profit from these illegal activities, without regard for the health and safety of Canadians, or the negative impact their activities have on the Canadian economy and legitimate business."

Abrahaam Benmoise, 56, is scheduled to appear in court on June 10.
