Singapore women arrested in fake thermometer case

A 33-year-old woman has been arrested in Singapore on suspicion of selling counterfeit electronic thermometers online.

She was taken into custody during raids at premises that resulted in the seizure of more than 300 trademark-infringing thermometers and probe covers, with an estimated street value of more than S$14,000 (around $10,200), according to the Singapore Police Force.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the woman had allegedly procured these counterfeit thermometers from foreign sources and offered them for sales online. Investigations are ongoing.

If found guilty of selling or distributing goods with falsely applied trademarks, she faces a fine of up to S$100,000, a jail term of up to five years, or both.
