A New York business owner has been arrested after allegedly selling millions of dollars worth of generic designer merchandise.

According to Nassau County sheriffs, 31 year old Lindsay Castelli allegedly sold fake designer items such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and much more out of her Long Island boutique.

Nassau County Police along with the United States Postal Service ran an 18 month long investigation that included multiple undercover buys from Castelli’s boutiques.

On October 4 authorities issued a warrant for both of Castelli’s stores, Christian Salvatore New York and Linny’s Boutique.

They recovered 22 heat press machines, thousands of synthetic heat-sealed counterfeit labels along with clothing and jewelry from the stores.

Apparently Castelli would purchase cheap clothing and then add a designer label and charge thousands.

Authorities say she sold over $40,000,000 worth of fake merchandise.

On October 7 Castelli turned herself into authorities and was charged with trademark counterfeiting.
