Bristol shopkeeper fined £10,000 for selling counterfeit tobacco in Stokes Croft

A shopkeeper selling illegal tobacco products in Stokes Croft has been fined more than £10,000 after being caught by Bristol’s trading standards officers.

They first visited the Best Supermarket in October last year, after receiving intelligence from Avon and Somerset police.

They found and confiscated counterfeit tobacco, along with snuff and shisha tobacco which was not correctly labelled with health warnings.

The shop’s owner, Ilyas Ahmed pleaded guilty to two charges regarding the labelling of products, and was found guilty on a further four counts relating to the counterfeit tobacco.

He was ordered to pay a £5,000 fine, as well as costs of more than £5,000.
