Police raid counterfeit compressor den

CHINA: Four people have been detained following a raid by Chinese police on a company suspected of passing off refurbished air conditioning compressors as well-known international brands.

Under guidance from the Baofeng County Public Security Bureau of Henan Province, police officers raided an abandoned farm being used by a household electrical appliance repair company.

The investigation revealed that since May 2018, the company bought waste air conditioning compressors from the internet. After being refurbished, they were branded with a registered trademark of an unnamed “famous foreign brand” and offered for sale online. 

At present, four criminal suspects have been detained, and the case is under further investigation.
