Florida Woman Arrested for Selling Counterfeit Luxury Items in Posh Boutique: Knock-offs Confiscated

A Florida boutique owner, known for socializing with prominent figures including former President Trump, has been arrested for selling counterfeit goods worth $2 million, as reported by the police.

Olena Austin, 51, has been accused of engaging in the sale of counterfeit clothing and jewelry at two Blesk Jewelry stores in the city. As a result, both locations have been closed, according to a report by WPTV-TV News earlier this month.

According to authorities, the stores were allegedly selling counterfeit versions of high-end designer brands such as Chanel, Tiffany, Rolex, Versace, Pucci, Bottega Veneta, and Van Cleef & Arpel. Customers were reportedly misled into believing that these knock-offs were authentic.

According to him, the counterfeit products could also have a negative impact on other businesses in the vicinity, as their prices may be undercut.

An affidavit, reviewed by a news outlet, states that a company named “A Action Investigations & Security, Inc.” is identified as the victim of the scam. However, a spokesperson for the company has chosen not to provide any comments on the matter.

Olena was taken into custody at a local store on June 7 and was subsequently granted release on a $50,000 bond as reported by The Post.
