For a Parkland woman, Hello Kitty meant hello, handcuffs.
Hong Xu, 39, was charged on Thursday with selling $20,000 or more in counterfeit goods.
According to a Broward Sheriff's Office report, she sold $78,669 worth of counterfeit items that included brands such as Hello Kitty, Apple, Disney and Hermes.
She also sold fake items under the names of Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League, it said.
Prior to her arrest, investigators conducted two controlled buys at her store, Imports by Lili, and purchased nearly $7,000 worth of counterfeit items, BSO said.
State corporate records show her business is located along the 3200 block of Northwest 23rd Avenue in Pompano Beach, where she was arrested Thursday.
After a search warrant was obtained and executed, the counterfeit goods were seized and placed into evidence, the report said. The items were "of good quality and not recognizable as counterfeit to the average prudent consumer," it said.
According to investigators, she told authorities that she purchased the merchandise from websites and offered those items for sale at her business. She posted a $3,500 bond and was released from jail Friday morning, jail records show.
