Saigon authorities busted a fake condom production facility at a private house Saturday and found hundreds of thousands of condoms and lubricants.

A raid by Saigon's market management agency on the house in Dong Hung Thuan 23 Road, District 12, found over 120,000 condoms and lubricants meant to be packaged as popular brands and over 60kg of raw materials to make them.

House owner Truong Chi Thanh, 28, who admitted to carrying the operations for over a month, said he bought raw materials from Kim Bien market in District 5, produced fake condoms and lubricants and packaged them as Durex, OK or Sure to sell them. 

It's not clear whether they would sell the items in the market directly or to middlemen.

A raid on a house in Hoc Mon District last August also uncovered production of fake condoms.

They were meant to be packaged as some world-famous brands and distributed in the market. The workers said they produced thousands of cartons every day based on orders.

No more details have been released by authorities.
