Shanghai police have seized one million fake toys after raiding a factory in the city of Dongguan. According to Chinese site The Paper, included among the fakes were Pokémon, Dragon Ball, One Piece and Gundam items.
The massive raid took place this past August and netted over 1,200 toy-making tools and equipment. China News reports that in total the goods are worth over $42 million dollars. Over twenty suspects were arrested.
China News added that Bandai Namco called the Shanghai police “pioneers in law enforcement, guardians of intellectual properties.”
The police recently appeared on Chinese television to show off the gift and discuss the raid.
A well-deserved thanks, indeed!
