Greek Police (EL.AS) along with Athens municipal crews and financial crimes squad (SDOE) officers raided a large “black market” warehouse in downtown Athens on Wedneday containing thousands of counterfeit brand name items.
More than one million items, outerwear, footwear, bags, wristwatches, all knock-off brands, were found in the warehouse, the 19th uncovered in downtown Athens since the beginning of the year. Authorities said it will take days to assess the street value of the confiscated goods.
The street value of the items discovered in the rest of the warehouses is estimated to more than 110 million euros.
