Hatfield pair admit selling fake goods on internet

A MAN and a woman have been convicted after they admitted flogging fake goods on the internet.

Baodong Zang and Ying Zheng were caught with 85 pairs of counterfeit shoes and a number of boxes of imitation clothes and designer belts during a police swoop in September 2008.

Phony jewellery, golf clubs and electrical items were also seized in the operation, which was carried out by Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Serious and Organised Crime Group.

On Monday, the pair, both 27 and from Parkhouse Court, Hatfield, pleaded guilty to three offences under the Trade Marks Act 1994 and a single offence under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 at a hearing at St Albans Crown Court.

They have been released on bail until sentencing in October.
