Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of Samara Haziin (62) of Little Falls, N.J. for possessing counterfeit registered products in violation of N.J.S. 2C:21-32, a third degree crime.
The incident that led to her arrest took place on April 28, 2012, at approximately 11:50 A.M. At that time, representatives from Allegiance Protection Group, which is headquartered in New York City and who investigates incidents involving individuals or companies engaged in the possession or sale of what are commonly known as designer “knock off” items, contacted the Fairfield Police Department to report that such activity was taking place at Spa Lady, located at 461 Route 46 West in Fairfield.
Fairfield police officers responded to the location and eventually met up with investigators from Allegiance Protection Group. Upon entering Spa Lady, it is alleged that they observed Hazin with multiple tables set up and engaged in selling various pocketbooks and items of men’s clothing that were identified as being fraudulent. Some of the designer names involved on the fraudulent items included Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Coach and Tory Burch. Hazin was arrested without incident. Police also impounded a 2001 Ford Econoline van from the parking lot of the strip mall where Spa Lady is located when investigators allegedly observed additional fraudulent designer items inside of it. All told, police allegedly seized over 200 fraudulent designer items and it is estimated that these items could have sold on the street for approximately $7000.00.
Hazin was charged and released on her own recognizance. She has an initial court appearance date in Essex County Superior Court on May 3, 2012. (It should be noted that the charges against Hazin are merely allegations and that she is presumed innocent until proven guilty)
