Huge £2.5 MILLION haul of fake and ‘unsafe’ Chanel, Armarni and GHD products seized.
This is the shocking haul of fake designer products discovered in raids across the city – and they’re worth a staggering £2.5 MILLION.
Counterfeit goods posing as Chanel, Dior and GHD products were seized as police and National Trading Standards officers swooped addresses in Birmingham.
The huge haul worth £2,500,000 was found during searches at a home in Hall Green and a storage unit in Digbeth last Wednesday (Jan 9).
It took two days for officers to clear out the warehouse in Digbeth, which was packed with tens of thousands of counterfeit products.
It included handbags, watches, purses, belts, electrical products, footwear, sunglasses and accessories – all printed with big luxury brand names.
Michael Kors, SuperDry, Louis Vuitton, North Face, Stone Island were just a few of the names on the dodgy and ‘unsafe’ gear.
