The Interior Ministry’s department of Anti-Economic Crime Police raided a warehouse in Toul Kork district on Wednesday after complaints from a company that it was producing fake goods.
Meas Ravuth, deputy director of the anti-economic crime department, said a complaint from the Srinana Porn Marketing Company led to the raid, which found the warehouse was producing fake Sento products, including pork and dried beef goods.
During the operation, police found evidence of brand counterfeiting, he added, noting the warehouse was packing goods and labelling them as Sento brands produced in Thailand, including dried tamarind and fake squid snacks.
“We are still continuing the investigation, the full details are yet to be confirmed,” he said.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court deputy prosecutor Hing Bunthorn said all the evidence seized was being kept at the Anti-Economic Crime Police department.
The warehouse owner, Hea Simeang, and three of his workers, were detained for questioning by police.
In a separate case on Wednesday, the Pursat province branch of CamControl burned 5,743 kilos of bad quality and prohibited goods at Pursat provincial stadium.
