PHOENIX -

A woman and her two employees were arrested for allegedly selling counterfeit handbags from her home 59th Avenue and I-10.

A Phoenix Police sergeant was patrolling a Maryvale neighborhood when he noticed about 200 designer fashions on display tables underneath large canopies in a driveway.

The officer thought it suspicious that these expensive items would be sold in a yard sale environment and an undercover officer was called in to purchase some items.

Officers got a search warrant and found out Maritza Garcia Orozco was operating "Maritza's Fashion" out of her home.

Orozco allegedly admitted to making at least $3,000 a week, but police believe she made much more based on the 1,714 items of inventory found inside her home.

Officers found fake items of brands like Gucci, Coach, Burberry and Michael Kors in the woman's inventory.

Orozco was arrested for allegedly operating an illegal enterprise and possessing counterfeit marks.

Her two employees allegedly admitted to knowingly selling the counterfeit bags and were arrested and charged with possessing counterfeit marks.

Police want to remind the public that knowingly possessing counterfeit items is against the law and causes the loss of tax dollars that ultimately go to schools and  local programs and could result in the loss of jobs for citizens.
