Toronto police have seized over $1 million in suspected counterfeit goods from a popular flea market. A three-month investigation resulted in raids at Dr. Flea’s on Friday and Sunday, where police hauled off clothing, toys, accessories and DVDs.
The huge cache was on display at a news conference at 23 Division on Monday.
Four people are facing copyright infringement charges and up to 12 more could be charged, police said.
The investigation involved 16 different booths at the market near Highway 27 and Albion Road.
