On the night of Tuesday (8/20), the Federal Highway Police stopped a bus around 10 pm on BR 116, km 426 of municipality of Juquiá / SP.

Under surveillance, nothing was found, but when checking the interior of the luggage compartment of the vehicle, the agents found out 9 large boxes of the same sender that would be delivered to Tietê bus station.

Upon inspecting the interior in detail, several labels were found from famous brands such as Adidas, Nike and Lacoste.

These materials would be incorporated into clothing, sneakers, handbags, etc. to make them look original, so the occurrence was framed in Law 9.279 / 96 in its Chapter III (Crimes against trademarks), where in its Article 189 defines that they commit crimes against trademark registration who:
