Three held as fake DVD factory is uncovered

Thousands of fake DVDs were seized yesterday by police probing organised crime in Northern Ireland.

Three men were arrested following raids in Belfast, County Antrim and County Down.

A factory producing the counterfeit goods was uncovered in the Toye area of Downpatrick.

Premises in the West Winds estate in Newtownards and the Ravenhill Road in Belfast were searched.

The suspects are aged 32, 36 and 41.

Police said the swoop was carried out by their organised crime branch and disrupted the manufacture, sale and distribution of counterfeit goods in the busy run-up to Christmas.
