Two men were arrested in Mecklenburg outside Burgersfort in Limpopo at the weekend for being in possession of an assortment of counterfeit goods.
Limpopo police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said said the men were arrested after a tip-off.
“We received a tip-off from community members after they noticed boxes being taken away from the bushes by a certain man while another one was observing the surroundings,” Ngoepe said.
The counterfeit goods included well-known brands like Converse and Puma.
Ngoepe said preliminary investigations revealed that the goods may have come from Mozambique.
The suspects will appear at the Mecklenburg Magistrate’s court on Monday.
