counterfeit goods

A private Mpumalanga security firm was instrumental in nabbing a man in possession of counterfeit sneakers (tekkies) totaling R5 million.

After receiving a tip-off, the security company followed a truck with the footwear from Komatipoort and alerted the White River K9 Dog Unit who arrested the driver at Karino on the outskirts of Mbombela.

Crates of counterfeit sneakers were found in the back of the truck and the 33-year old man will appear in the Nelspruit magistrate court today on charge on possession of counterfeit goods.
