Young man and woman arrested for selling counterfeit perfumes worth over $91,000

A 21-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman have been arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit goods online.

The police said that officers from the Criminal Investigation Department conducted an enforcement operation at multiple premises along River Valley and Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park on Monday (Mar 20), resulting in the arrests.

More than 1,100 pieces of purported trademark-infringing bottles of perfume with an estimated street value of over $91,000 were seized during the raid.

Police investigations are ongoing.

Under the Trade Marks Act 1998, the offence of possession of goods with falsely applied trademarks for the purpose of trade carries a fine up to $100,000 and/or a jail term of up to five years, or both.

The police said they take a serious view of intellectual property rights infringement. Members of the public are reminded that the distribution and sale of counterfeit goods are serious offences.

They added: "The police will not hesitate to take tough action against perpetrators who profit at the expense of legitimate businesses and consumers."
