A five month investigation by the Sudbury Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) ended successfully with the seizure of counterfeit chainsaws from a home based business in Kapuskasing.

On Thursday, February 14th, 2013, a search warrant was executed at a residence in Kapuskasing. The search included the residence and garage of a home based internet business operating under the name of Greenways Products Company. Chainsaws bearing the counterfeit Husqvarna logo were seized as well as instruments that were unlawfully used in the forging of a trade mark.

Noel Raymond AUBIN (45 years old) of Kapuskasing has been charged under the Criminal Code with:

  • Passing off of wares (Husqvarna chainsaws) with the intent to deceive or defraud the public
  • Possession of property obtained by crime (Forged trademarks)
  • Possession of instruments intended to be used in the forging of a trade-mark

Mr. AUBIN is scheduled to attend court on April 16, 2013.

The public is advised that chainsaws purchased from Noel AUBIN (Greenways Products Company) may not meet the safety standard of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and therefore could pose a risk of serious injury to its user.

“We wish to remind the public that if the price is too good to be true, it probably is” said Cst Denis Grimard (RCMP Sudbury Detachment), “when in doubt, always contact the legitimate manufacturer”.
