Two Chinese nationals who were taken into custody on Monday in connection with the seizure of over $100 million worth of counterfeit items in downtown Kingston, have since been charged by the police.

The suspects have been charged with breaches of the Consumer Protection Act, the Trademark Act, and the Customs Act.

The charges emerged after the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC) seized the counterfeit items during an operation along Barry Street on Monday.

It was the second such raid by C-TOC in downtown Kingston in recent times. The first raid netted counterfeit items valued at over $300 million, and also resulted in charges being laid against two Chinese nationals.
