Gables Group Closes
31, 2010) The Gables Group, Inc., in conjunction with the Office of the
Attorney General of the Republic of Mexico, directed and
effectuated the shuttering of a "vertically integrated" (manufacturing,
wholesale and retail) counterfeit goods operation based in Mexico City,
D.F. that offered it's illicit products throughout Mexico.
Counterfeit Product Operation
This enterprise had brazenly supplied Mexican government agencies,
private businesses, and the general public with dangerous counterfeit
chemical products, masquerading as an internationally respected brand.
The year-long investigation began upon receipt of a report that
wholesale quantities of counterfeit product had been sold, and were
being offered for sale, in several locations across Mexico.
Although bearing labels that closely resembled those of our client's
respected product, these counterfeit goods were, in actuality,
dangerous chemicals that threatened public safety.
Our agents located sources, purchased counterfeit product in several
Mexican cities, and subsequently identified the location of the prime
After the preparation and presentation of requisite documentation and
supporting pleadings, government officials (search warrant in hand)
conducted a raid of the afore-referenced factory (located in a remote
location outside the capital). Agents seized containers, counterfeit
labels, and samples of the recently manufactured counterfeit product.
Owing to the extensive support and perseverance of the Office of
Attorney General, further search and arrest warrants were obtained.
On the evening of 9 September, 2009, agents of the Policia Federal
Ministerial (PFM) raided and closed a retail location in Mexico City,
seized additional stockpiles of counterfeit product, and arrested the
manager on duty. Intelligence obtained from the raid, coupled with
substantial evidence previously gathered by Gables Group sources,
resulted in the issuance of an arrest warrant for the apparent
mastermind of the counterfeit operation. Federal officials promptly
executed the warrant, resulting in the subject's immediate
Hijacking the names of respected manufacturers, and claiming legitimacy
via the use of nearly identical counterfeit labels and/or product
designs, professional, well organized criminal enterprises defraud and
endanger the public, and threaten the reputations and financial results
of legitimate manufacturers. Close cooperation between industry and
governmental officials is necessary to ensure the prompt and efficient
"rolling up" of these pirate entities.
The Gables Group would like to thank the employees and prosecutors
within The Office of The Attorney General of the Republic of Mexico,
for their painstaking dedication and invaluable assistance herein.
