ACG and its members join forces with Camden Trading Standards and Metropolitan Police to seize large quantities of counterfeit goods from High Street shops, leading to a 3 month closure order being enforced.
Camden Police have made it clear that the sale of counterfeit goods will not be tolerated by issuing a closure notice to a shop that was visited for the 6th time by trading standards and over 150k worth of illegal counterfeit goods were seized!
Removal of counterfeit and potentially unsafe goods protects legitimate businesses and consumers and ACG will continue to support these intelligence led partnership raid actions going forward. We are very grateful to both Camden TS and Met Police for taking the action.
