Uniformed officers seized 500 offensive items – including rude t-shirts and willy-shaped sweets – before proudly displaying their haul at a hastily-arranged press conference.
The items are popular with boozy Brits on hen and stag dos – who locals think are ruining the area's reputation.
Cops launched the raids after dozens of residents complained about thge wares on sale.
The haul included 380 brightly-coloured sleeveless tops with offensive messages written in English which included "lick my p***y", "f**k off", "f**k loud and make noise", “suck my c**k” and “I think he's gay”.
Police said all these items were "perfectly visible to the public” – including kids.
In addition, none of the establishments had authorisation for the sale of adult-themed goods.
Shop owners now face fines of between £535 and £27,000.
Security chief Lorenzo Martinez said: "most of the goods that had been confiscated were aimed at the British public.”
Last July Security he banned clubs and pubs in the Little England area from offering free drinks to lure punters inside.
