Counterfeit goods worth up to £35,000 have been seized during a raid at a house in Northampton.
Roy Leah who is 62 of Woodland Close, Duston admitted admitted six offences contravening the Trade Marks Act and was given a fine totalling £1,724 including court costs of £1,060 at Northampton Magistrates’ Court.
Trading Standards say he planned to sell the items which included clothes and perfume in local pubs.
- 31 Jo Malone Candles
- 18 Bottles of perfume
- 13 pouches of tobacco
- 70 Designer coats
- 29 Football shirts
"This is a great result for our Trading Standards team and it demonstrates that unlawful trading will not be tolerated in Northamptonshire. I would urge people not to buy counterfeit goods and only use reputable traders. It may be tempting to buy what appear to be authentic items at a low price, but if it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
