Charges for breaching the Trademark and Pharmaceutical acts are expected to be brought against a Clarendon businessman following the seizure of counterfeit shoes and other items at his store in May Pen. 

Detectives from Kingston say they seized hundreds of pairs of counterfeit brand name shoes at the Casper Store and Baby Zone store in Guinep Tree yesterday.

Along with the counterfeit brand name shoes, the police also removed items of clothing and bleaching chemicals. 

The store was closed for business and the proprietor taken into custody.

Detective Inspector, Clarence Bailey, says charges could also be brought against the businessman for breaches of the Pharmaceuticals Act for selling prescription bleaching products without a license.

He is appealing to the public to be vigilant and not to purchase counterfeit items.
