A man has been arrested after a six hour operation by Singapore Customs and CID officers for his suspected involvement in importing counterfeit bags for trading.
Singapore Customs had inspected the consignment of goods suspected to be fakes, and brand owners subsequently confirmed 200 bags and pieces of luggage were indeed counterfeits. CID was informed, and after extensive inquiries, they carried out a raid at a Jurong Port warehouse and a Punggol residential unit.
The 43 year old man was arrested, and a further 318 counterfeit bags were seized, with a total value believed to be $11,680. Investigations against the man are still ongoing.
