A HAUL of suspected fake designer accessories has been removed from sale from two premises in Chelmsley Wood following a joint operation between Solihull Council’s Trading Standards and the Police.
More than 100 items including Dr Dre branded headphones, Gucci watches, Louis Vuitton belts, iPhone and iPad covers and Ugg hat and scarf sets were confiscated on Thursday, December 20 following complaints from the public.
A sample of the goods will now go to each trademark holder to confirm whether they are counterfeit.
Acting Sergeant Steph Rolfe said: “We hope this operation reassures shoppers and legitimate traders that we are working to protect them.”
Anyone concerned they have purchased a fake product or has information about counterfeits being sold, can call the CEnTSA (Central England Trading Standards Authorities) Fakes Hotline on 0845 894 1008 or fill in the online form at: www.centsa.org.uk/report_fake_goods.php.
