Counterfeit crackdown by Costa del Sol police

POLICE have seized more than 1,300 counterfeit handbags, items of clothing and shoes in the latest crackdown on illegal street vendors in Benalmadena.

It comes in the wake of a special probe ordered by the town council which culminated in 27 officers swooping on a property in plaza Ole Ole.

Security councillor Javier Marin praised the raid and confirmed that one person had been arrested.

Commerce counterpart Bernardo Jimenez added: “The Local Police is making a superb effort to protect the rights and interests of our local businesses which are being severely harmed by this activity [‘looky looky’ beach and street sellers].

“We are a tourist town that triples its population in summer and it is very difficult to allocate officers to clamping down without neglecting safety elsewhere.”
