Police arrest one man and seize 25,000 counterfeit DVDs
Police have arrested a man and seized more than 25,000 counterfeit D-V-Ds, along with computers, hard drives and cash. RCMP say they made the seizure Thursday after executing a search warrant at a home in McAdam. A 53-year-old man was arrested and released. He is to appear in court at a later date to face charges under the Copyright Act for illegally making and selling counterfeit goods. Corporal Chantal Farrah says the seized DVDs include counterfeit copies of movies, video games and television shows. She notes investigations like this are becoming more common.
Farrah says this is the biggest seizure of counterfeit DVDs in this province.
