£44k seized by Trading Standards

Trading standards officers from Milton Keynes Council seized over £44k cash from a property in the city last week.

This action followed reports of cigarette sales to children and officers seized a substantial amount of illegally imported tobacco together with cash. 

Head of Trading Standards, Karen Ford said: “Crime does not pay, that is the simple message we have for those who think they might get away with trading illegally.”

Mike Galloway, cabinet member responsible for Trading Standards, added: “Proceeds of crime will not stay in the hands of the criminals. 

“Milton Keynes Council will use the law to make sure not only that criminals are brought to justice but to ensure the money they have stashed is dealt with properly by the courts.”
