PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A Phoenix woman was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of selling counterfeit fashions after a police sergeant noticed large canopies and display tables in her driveway.
Sgt. Mark Rios of the Phoenix Police Department's Maryvale Precinct Neighborhood Enforcement Team was patrolling his squad area when he came across the activity in the 1800 block N. 59th Ave.
Rios said he saw about 200 items bearing registered trademarks hanging from the canopies and scattered on the tables.
The sergeant said he thought it was suspicious that these type of items would be sold in a yard sale environment and contacted members of the Phoenix Police Business and Economic Stability Team for assistance.
Detectives enlisted an undercover female officer from the Estrella Mountain Precinct NET squad and asked her to shop the location. The officer bought some of the goods and obtained probable cause for a search warrant of the location.
The investigation showed the home was being used as a business for "Maritza's Fashion."
Maritza Garcia Orozco was arrested for operating an illegal enterprise and possessing counterfeit marks. Orozco had two employees working for her who admitted to knowingly selling the counterfeit goods, Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said. They were arrested and charged with possessing counterfeit marks.
Orozco admitted to making at least $3,000 a week profit or $150,000 a year with her enterprise, Martos said. The suspect had 1,714 items in inventory with a "real" value of $497,919.50 and $49,720 at her "store" price, Martos said.
The inventory consisted of brand names such as Gucci, Coach, Burberry and Michael Khors.
