A 39-year-old man wanted on suspicion of malicious communications was arrested in Ramsgate yesterday (January 25).

Special constables and officers from the Thanet Community Policing Team attended a property in St Lawrence  where they arrested the man and also seized cigarettes suspected to be counterfeit.

He was taken to custody while enquiries continue. Trading Standards will be notified of the seized goods. A further two people were also arrested during the patrol.

  1. There is no incentive to stop doing what they do as the money they take from the tax system is much more than any fine. The confiscation is just small fry within the huge problems with shops in Thanet trading under the counter illegal fake cigarettes and tobacco. Repeated finds of fake fags being sold openly in Thanet shops go by with no consequences.
