BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese police have broken up 97 criminal dens and arrested 184 suspects in a cross-provincial raid on high-end bogus liquor producers, the Ministry of Public Security said in a statement Wednesday.

About 14,000 bottles of phoney branded wine and 30 million units of counterfeit logo trademarks and boxes copying those of expensive liquors, such as Kweichow Moutai, were confiscated, according to the ministry.

The ministry estimated that if sold on the market, the faked goods would rake in more than 3 billion yuan (474 million U.S. dollars).
