Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Kent police and the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) seized 100,000 fake DVDs and arrested three men during an operation yesterday, the BBC reports.

Two Chinese men were arrested in Burnt Oak, north London, and another in Peckham, south of the river. The raids came at the end of "several months of intelligence and evidence gathering" and busted "one of the largest counterfeit DVD operations we have managed to raid", according to FACT.

The haul, which included current release The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, also yielded "computers, seven printers for producing labels and covers, 200 DVD burners, and thousands of blank discs and cases". The BBC reports the estimated value of the counterfiet DVDs as £500,000. ®
