National Police officers have arrested four Romanians who were selling fake items of clothing where there were large numbers of passing tourists, including in a shopping centre in Marbella town and a shopping area in nearby Puerto Banús.

The prices of the 1400 pieces of clothing seized by police ranged from 60 to 900 euros, and could therefore have been sold for 220,000 euros.

The four men involved were arrested on charges of fraud and breaking copyright rules.
