Police Target Sellers of Fake Goods

November 26, 2012, 3:59 pm

Police in Foyle have seized counterfeit goods worth an estimated £10,000 and are urging people to be vigilant in this festive shopping period.
A substantial quantity of fake items, including Pandora jewellery and Perfume gift sets were seized following a search of a white van driving around the Top of the Hill area on Friday 16th November. A 33 yr-old male was arrested.
Inspector Yvonne McManus said, “These goods appear genuine but in reality customers are buying cheap imitations. Police are committed to creating an environment in Northern Ireland which supports legitimate traders and brings the full force of the law to bear on those criminals dealing in counterfeit goods.”
Proactive police operations targeting the trade of counterfeit goods will continue in the run up to Christmas and Police are asking anyone with information regarding the making or distributing of counterfeit goods to contact police on 0845 600 8000 or the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
