Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong of Austin set up the foundation. He's a cancer survivor.
The investigation involves counterfeiting and trademark charges related to the wristbands that sell for one dollar apiece.
Undercover agents in March bought about 1,000 of the bogus yellow wristbands from a Manhattan storefront.
Authorities found 81-thousand more at the site and at a home in Queens.
About 55 million genuine LiveStrong wristbands have been sold since the campaign began in the spring of 2004.
