.Counterfeit consumer goods are goods, often of inferior quality, made or sold under another's brand name without the brand owner's authorization. Sellers of such goods may infringe on either the trademark, patent, or copyright of the brand owner by passing off its goods as made by the brand owner. And that is one of the serious crimes Mzansi is currently facing, more especially from people from outside.

Counterfeit goods worth R7.4m were confiscated during a raid in the Johannesburg CBD, Gauteng police said. Police spokesperson Col Dimakatso Sello said crime intelligence, public order policing, customs, and private safety seized the goods at some stage in operation O Kae Molao on Friday.

Meanwhile, three people had been arrested. And the team additionally arrested 67 suspects for numerous crimes such as possession of drugs, possession of suspected stolen vehicle, ownership and working of illicit goods, drunken and dealing in liquor without a license.

All arrested suspects are anticipated to appear in one of the magistrate's courts on Monday.

Among the ones arrested there had been also eleven undocumented people and 33 wanted suspects for various crimes along with murder, armed theft, theft and attack GBH, Sello said.
