Chinese Man Arrested in Bangkok with more than 20 Million Baht in Counterfeit Electronics

Bangkok –

A Chinese man was arrested in a raid at a warehouse in Don Mueang where Thai officials found counterfeit mobile phones and electronic devices that cost more than 20 million baht.

A team of police from the Economic Crime Suppression Division (ECD) raided three buildings in Don Mueang. Many counterfeit mobile phones and electronic devices were found which cost more than 20 million baht.

Mr. Huang Yiqun, 56, a Chinese national, was found as the warehouse caretaker along with four Laotian workers.

Mr. Huang told police that he was hired by an unidentified Chinese businessman to take care of and manage products in the warehouses. He admitted that these items were counterfeit products from China which were sold online. He received 30,000 baht a month for his salary, which Huang said was enough for him to live and better than China.

Mr. Huang was taken to a police station to face charges of possession of counterfeit products. Police are reportedly searching for the primary owner of the illegal business.
