Counterfeit cigarettes Lurgan

This is the stash of counterfeit cigarettes uncovered by police in Lurgan earlier today (Friday).

Lurgan Neighbourhood Police Team stopped a vehicle in the town while on patrol, locating a large amount of suspected counterfeit cigarettes and tobacco in the process.

A police spokesperson said: “Counterfeit cigarettes can be of poor quality and can contain a higher level of harmful chemicals than would be found in a legitimate product.

“The persons making and selling have no care for the customer and are looking to make a quick profit at the expense of your health.”
