According to the United States Attorney’s Office, Liew intentionally trafficked in goods — specifically counterfeit Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Coach and Gucci purses and wallets — from January 2012 through last month.
The indictment states that Liew knowingly used counterfeit marks, which were registered trademarks, in an attempt to make the items appear legitimate.
His next-door neighbor was surprised with the feds showed up.
“I’m stunned, actually,” neighbor Prasanta Misra said. “Of course we don’t know them very well. They leave in early in the morning and don’t come back until the evening. When they are at home they are quiet and to themselves and seem to be decent people.”
If convicted, Liew faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $2 million. The indictment also includes an order of forfeiture of $3 million.
