A rural case of auto spare parts counterfeiting worth over 10 million yuan was investigated and the large family-type gang was destroyed by the police. On January 21, the police in Wuhan revealed that they successfully cracked the largest case about auto spare parts counterfeiting in recent years on January 16, catching 12 suspects. On the site, the fake and counterfeit auto spare parts piled up like a mountain.

According to the police, the authentic halogen headlights is priced at over 800 yuan while the counterfeit one from this hideout is only charged 400 yuan, with its cost at 200 yuan. The gang’s net profit reached as high as 1.5 million yuan last December and the illegal income for the whole year was expected to exceed 10 million yuan.

Now 12 suspects have been under criminal detention for allegedly counterfeiting registered trademarks, and the case is pending for further investigation.
