Counterfeit goods seized in raid

Counterfeit goods worth nearly £20,000 have been recovered after a police raid on a property in Hawick.

Police Scotland: "we will look to stem the cash flow for serious and organised crime groups"

"Profits from counterfeit goods fund a range of other criminal activity and wherever possible, we will look to stem the cash flow for serious and organised crime groups.

"The recovery of these items means several thousand pounds in cash will not line the pockets of criminals and we are grateful for the assistance and support of our colleagues at Trading Standards during this investigation."

– Inspector Carol Wood, Police Scotland
