More than 100 PCSO uniforms and equipment were discovered at a flat in Salford.
Police issued a warrant to the flat on Cottenham Lane, Lower Broughton where they found the stolen goods.
As well as the uniforms, officers found police batons, jackets, body armour, handcuffs and CS spray holders.
It is believed the uniforms, which had old Metropolitan Police badges sown onto them, were being sold on the streets of Manchester for hundreds of pounds.
Greater Manchester Police are now reminding residents to always ask for ID when speaking to police officers.
The find comes after an aggravated burglary at the Royal British Legion in Walkden, in which two suspects were dressed as police officers.
A steward at the Legion's club was tied up and handcuffed by the fake policemen.
