Police say they seized 180,000 fake cosmetic products worth Bt300 million on Wednesday night from five locations in Bangkok and arrested two suspects for trying to sell the goods, Immigration Bureau chief Pol Lt-Gen Surachet Hakpal said.
Surachet, along with secretary general of the Food and Drug Administration Dr Thares Krassanai-Rawiwong, conducted a warranted search in Soi Sai Mai 13 in Sai Mai district that reportedly stored imported fake versions of Channel, Lancome, DKNY and Dior cosmetics for sale online.
At the Sai Mai building, officers said they confiscated 80,000 fake cosmetic products.
Surachet named the suspects as Renu Imlamai, 62, and Chanalert Rujipaiboon, 45, from the Thai-US collaboration to crackdown on fake goods that violate copyright and intellectual property law.
