A Ballymena man appeared at the town’s Magistrates Court on Thursday and admitted charges of possessing items in breach of registered trademarks including Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, Polo Ralph Lauren and Hummel.
Alan William Caulfield (43), unemployed, of Alfred Street Place, had items at his address on October 2 last year.
A defence solicitor said 53 items were found including T-shirts and “football jerseys”.
The lawyer said the defendant had “certain personal issues”.
The case was adjourned to the end of July.
