Adidas and Fred Perry, were found.The haul was completed with 42 jackets, 69 fake Chloe and Playboy handbags, nine watches and 102 T shirts.Collectively, the phoneys could be sold on the black market for an estimated Newcastle City Council executive member for regulation Coun Anita Lower said: “This operation has resulted in a large quantity of counterfeit clothing and jewellery being prevented from hitting the streets.”Fake goods like this are generally poor in quality and can even be dangerous, with the profits funding other forms of criminal activity.”People who buy these things may think they are getting a bargain but the public should be warned that if they think the price is too good to be true, it probably is. We are committed to cracking down on the trade in counterfeit goods and will work closely with the police and other agencies to do so.”After the seizure was made, an investigation was launched into the origin of all the goods.A man found at the store at the time of the raid was questioned and continues to help officers with their inquiries.Insp Terry McNamara said: “Trading Standards officers from the city council were supported by local officers and they jointly executed a warrant at an outlet on Shields Road, Byker.”This was a successful operation and we’ll continue to work in partnership with Newcastle City Council and other agencies to put a stop to fraudulent activity, target criminals and prevent other crime and disorder across the area.”As is often the case,

the information about this activity came from the public and I’d like to encourage more people to come forward with information about crime and disorder in their area.”This operation demonstrates we do act on information we receive in order to tackle the issues of most concern to the community and stop criminals in their tracks.”
