The Hawks have confiscated more than R5 million in counterfeit car parts during a raid in Johannesburg.
Officers carried out a search and seizure operation at a warehouse in Tulisa Park on Friday, where they found counterfeit car spares were being sold to the public.
They found “large quantities of bearings” with the branding and logo of manufacturer NSK, said Hawks spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Nkwalase.
Two people, aged 49 and 52, would face criminal and civil processes, said Nkwalase.
“They will, at a later stage, be served with [a] J175 summons to appear in court for contravention of the Counterfeit Goods Act once all investigations are concluded,” Nkwalase added.
