The director of Company Amazing Savings Ltd (ASL) has been found guilty of importing and selling counterfeit toys.

Jonathan Kahn, director of the firm, has been given a two-year jail sentence, suspended for two years, after he stored more than £1 million worth of bootleg goods. 

Kahn had denied storing and selling thousands of counterfeit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys, as well as other brands to major High Street stores.

The company and Kahn were found guilty of 34 trademark offences and has since been disqualified from being a company director for four years.

Judge Stuart Baker, said: "You knew throughout or at some stage that you were buying counterfeit goods,” reports the Blackpool Gazette.

"You were informed by Trading Standards officers that some Spiderman toys supplied were counterfeit. Nevertheless you continued to buy from him.” 

The offences were uncovered during a probe by Blackpool Council’s trading standard department, after they received a tip off that fake toys were seen in B&M Bargains.
