The Provincial Command of the Guardia di Finanza of Naples, during a series of anti-counterfeiting inspections carried out between the capital and the metropolitan area, made an arrest, denounced 11 responsible and seized over 125,000 counterfeit or “unsafe” products , without the minimum safety certifications and indications for the consumer. In particular, the “Green Basques” of the Ready-to-Use Group of Naples, in the Vicaria-Mercato district, arrested a Pakistani citizen who attempted during the check to bribe the financiers and seized, in an illegal deposit set up in his home, over 43,000 between counterfeit clothing and sunglasses. The “Green Basques” themselves, in the industrial area, seized 30,000 counterfeit car accessories, denouncing a Chinese citizen who is the legal representative of a company operating in the sector of trade in lighting products. The same Neapolitan Ready-to-Use Group, at the end of a stalking started in the Pendino district of the capital, and more precisely in the “La Maddalena” area, identified and seized a clandestine warehouse of counterfeit goods in San Giuseppe Vesuviano. Almost 5,000 counterfeit shoes of excellent quality and workmanship were found, in addition to the necessary materials for their packaging (boxes, bags and laces). A Moroccan national who was surprised while transporting counterfeit shoes (with Nike, Louis Vuitton, Adidas, Fila, Valentino brands) was reported to the Judicial Authority. Also in San Giuseppe Vesuviano, the Fiamme Gialle of Ottaviano have seized an illegal factory perfectly equipped with all professional machinery and over 600 items of finished and semi-finished clothing. Also found 2 tons of scraps from textile processing and 1.5 tons of special non-hazardous waste including paper, cardboard, plastic and iron. A manager denounced.
The financiers of the Frattamaggiore Group, in the course of four interventions conducted between the San Giovanni a Teduccio districts of Naples and Casoria, identified an illegal deposit and seized over 44,000 counterfeit items, including bags, belts, T-shirts, overalls, footwear, labels and semi-finished products ready for assembly, with Dolce & Gabbana, Stone Island, Prada, Dsquared2, Gucci and Nike brands, as well as 50 watches including Rolex Submariner, Yacht Master, Gmt2, Datajust and Omega Snoopy. 6 subjects, including Italians and foreigners, including a non-EU citizen without a residence permit, have been reported for counterfeiting and receiving stolen goods. Finally, the financiers of the Torre Annunziata Group noticed, near the Torre Annunziata Sud motorway exit, two men standing outside the cars while exchanging cash; the two were then subjected to a more in-depth check, which made it possible to find dozens of counterfeit perfumes (with Creed, Chanel, Paco Rabanne, Dior, Tom Ford, Montale, Giorgio Armani brands). Subsequent searches at the places in their availability have made it possible to find, between Boscoreale and Arzano, almost 4000 counterfeit items of various kinds, including accessories for the person (wallets, backpacks, towels, sunglasses, etc.), for the kitchen, children’s books and t-shirts (with Disney, Squid Game, La Casa di Carta, Napoli SSC, FC Inter, Gucci, Ray Ban, Luis Vuitton brands).
