BOC seizes P300-M fake goods

MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) yesterday confiscated an estimated P300 million worth of counterfeit cigarettes and food items from three warehouses in Quezon City and Manila.

BOC Commissioner Isidro Lapeña visited the warehouses along Ventura and Kanlaon streets in Quezon City and Blumentritt in Manila.

Agents seized imitations of branded cigarettes, bath soap and food seasonings – all from China – after two months of surveillance.

The warehouses are reportedly owned by a certain Erlinda Rico, who also uses the name Linda Chua.

Based on the initial information gathered by the BOC, Chua’s warehouses have been operating for five years.
