WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita store owner has admitted trafficking in fake luxury items bearing such designer labels as Prada and Chanel.

Glenda Sue Morgan pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to one count of trafficking in goods bearing counterfeit trademarks.

Morgan and her business, The Fabulous Store LLC, were indicted in April on charges of conspiracy and trafficking. In exchange for Morgan's plea Tuesday, prosecutors agreed to drop at sentencing the remaining charges against her and all charges against the store.

Prosecutors allege Morgan sold handbags, wallets, sunglasses and jewelry bearing brand names that were not made by the companies. Investigators seized 400 replica items with a retail value of $14,000. The goods would have been worth $140,000 had the trademarks been genuine.

Sentencing is Jan. 17.
