Plumstead shop owners face £25,190 cost after guilty verdict

A shop on Plumstead High Street’s owners have been forced to pay more than £25,000 after being found guilty of selling illegal tobacco and cigerettes.

Magazin Romanesc – located to the west of the High Street close to the station – was caught selling items in 2022 and found guilty this month at Bexley Magistrates’ Court.

Costs total a fine of £10,000 and costs of £15,000 plus a £190 charge after a guilty plea on 10 charges.

Two directors from Barking were also ordered to undertake community service.
