Authorities note that the search warrants were served in Yuba County and San Jose by agents with the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force. Officers from several different jurisdictions make up the unit.

About 50,000 counterfeit CDs and 30,000 counterfeit DVDs were seized in the operation, along with $26,000 in cash that authorities believe are a part of the profits made from the bootleg operation.
