Trader pleads guilty to selling fake goods at Stow Fair
A TRADER has pleaded guilty to six charges of selling counterfeit clothing at Stow Fair.
Satpal Singh, of Hill Road in Rochester, Kent, sold the counterfeit products from a white Ford Transit van at the fair on May 10 last year.
Following an investigation by Gloucestershire Trading Standards officers, an estimated £5,800 of clothes were discovered – including brands such as Superdry, Adidas, Nike, Fred Perry and Ralph Lauren.
The 51-year-old was also found with £1,200 in cash.
Eddie Coventry, Head of Trading Standards, said: “Thanks to the hard work of Trading Standards officers this is another good result in the battle against traders who undermine legitimate businesses and leave consumers with no way of exercising their rights.”
Councillor Will Windsor-Clive, Gloucestershire County Council cabinet member for fire, planning and infrastructure, said: “I’m delighted that the hard work Trading Standards officers have put into this investigation has had a positive result.
“It sends out an important message to those who continue to break the law.”
Singh is due back at Gloucester Crown Court for sentencing on Friday, October 4.
