This is one crime that you won’t find at the top of nefarious crimes lists – selling fake hubcaps. However it seems that in Quebec, this is worthy of news.
Police in Quebec City have seized more than 3,000 counterfeit hubcaps.
RCMP officers searched an auto parts business and two warehouses to find the fake hubcaps.
All these hubcaps had well-known trademarks on them such as Cadillac, Audi, BMW, Volkswagen and GM.
Four men were arrested and charges are pending, police said.
“The illegal production and sale of counterfeit goods account for losses of several million dollars annually. Counterfeit goods can pose health and safety risks to the public. The RCMP invites consumers to make the right choices to prevent the harm caused by such criminal activity,” the police said in a release.
