A crackdown on the sale of counterfeit goods in Pembrokeshire has led to police and trading standards officers making several swoops on homes and vehicles, the Western Telegraph can reveal.

Fake items - understood to include clothing and footwear bearing well-known brand names - and large sums of money have been seized in the raids.

Pembrokeshire County Council's trading standards team has been keeping an eye out for fake goods being sold via Facebook.

"This follows concern from local businesses at Facebook sites offering cheap goods," said a council spokesman.

"In the last few months and having obtained the necessary warrants, several private houses and vehicles in Pembrokeshire have been raided and counterfeit goods and large sums of money seized."

"We are unable to comment on individual cases as we would not want to jeopardise any possible future legal action."

Seriously though, it does make you wonder why some things get investigated and others don't.

At one time I might have been taught to be ******* but I know Freemasonry was "rife" in the Police Force years ago - is it still ?

Changing the subject completely - Are any of the IPPG admitting to being members of the Kremlin on the Cleddau Coven in their potted histories (as, and I know you'll laugh at this as well) Masons insist Freemasonry is NOT a self serving secret society ?
