Police seize almost 300 knock-off items from Abbotsford Flea Market

Police seized almost 300 knock-off designer items valued at $43,000 on Sunday from the Abbotsford Flea Market.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the items included jeans, purses, wallets, belts, hoodies and track suits sporting counterfeit labels such as True Religion, Juicy Couture, Affliction, Christian Audigier, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

A 53-year-old woman was tending the goods, but no charges have yet been laid.

In July, police seized more than 1,000 knock-off duds from the flea market at a booth being manned by a 32-year-old man.
