Fake Ds Games And Ugg Boots Seized

TRADING standards officers have seized counterfeit Nintendo games and Ugg boots from a home in Hanchett End, Haverhill.

Staff from Suffolk County Council were acting on information provided by the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA).

The 200 counterfeit Nintendo DS games were estimated to have a street value of £2,500, and included popular titles such as Mariokart.

ELSPA had bought one of the games from an eBay seller, who was traced back to Haverhill, and contacted Suffolk County Council, which then carried out some test purchases of its own.

The counterfeits were said to be of a very high quality.

In addition, trading standards officers took five pairs of Uggboots – popular with celebrities including Katie Price, Rachel Stevens and Sienna Miller – which were believed to be fake, and which have an estimated street value of £850.

Sasha Watson, from Suffolk trading standards, said the items would now have to be sent away to verify they were counterfeit and the occupants of the property would be questioned further.
