At one of the sites, police officers discovered a complete production line, semi-finished products and packaging. In addition, officers confiscated over two thousand ready-made perfume bottles, prepared for distribution.

On the same day, police officers arrested a 44-year-old man suspected of masterminding the production and sale of counterfeit goods.
