That fake Coach handbag, and the phony Louis Vuitton scarf may soon get a lot harder to find on America's streets. The government on Tuesday announced its biggest ever West Coast seizure of phony designer goods targeting San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf district.

The Obama administration had been promising to step up enforcement actions aimed at intellectual property including trademarks, and there were hints Tuesday of more raids to come.

Among the contraband seized Tuesday: Counterfeit copies of designer brands like Oakley, Dooney and Bourke, Nike, Coach and Kate Spade, and foreign designers such as Armani, Burberry, Prada and Louis Vuitton.
