Bags of cannabis and hundreds of suspected fake clothes, trainers, perfume and jewellery were seized in a pre-Christmas raid on a Walsall market.
Walsall Council’s Trading Standards team, alongside police and brand protection officers, raided the popular Bescot Market on Sunday.
Tens of thousands of pounds worth of fake goods was seized from the market, including 33 bags from one trader alone.
It is not known if the cannabis found was intended for supply or for personal use and police are now investigating.
Acting on information supplied to them, enforcement officers visited stalls where suspected criminal activity was taking place and began investigations.
