Istanbul Seized Counterfeits

11 12 2012

This morning, after launching a ton of operations at 45 different locations, police detained 300,000 boxes of counterfeit drugs! They are estimated to be about 600,000 Turkish Liras (336624.60 US Dollars). These raids were conducted at 0600, which followed eight months of audio surveillance against a gang that was producing fake pharmaceuticals.

Istanbul police also raided a pharmacy seizing a huge number of chemicals used in medicine production and devices to dry the newly made drugs. The owner of the drugstore, M.D.F., as well as 30 others, were detained. Most of the drugs were advertised as aphrodisiacs.
