Paris police say they’ve seized some rather unusual contraband: around 13 tons of mini Eiffel Towers.

Police official Pierre Coric says a Paris souvenir shop owner, her husband and her son also were arrested in the weighty trinket-seizure.

The three are accused of selling the mini towers at tourist spots including the Louvre and the actual Eiffel Tower without a permit.

The operation, led jointly by French customs, social security and the police transport division, followed several months of surveillance of the souvenir shop. Police say the boutique illegally rakes in some 1 million EURO ($1.31 million) per year.

If 13 tons seems like a heavy load, it pales in comparison to the real Eiffel Tower, which weighs in at 11,100 tons.

The Eiffel Tower was built by architect Gustave Eiffel between the years of 1887-1889 and is approximately 984-990 feet high. From the very top, you can see around 37 miles. It’s painted dark brown and is used as a radio broadcasting and observation tower.
