Justice sniffs out counterfeit perfume

 

   Two New Jersey men were charged in an indictment unsealed on Dec. 1 in the Eastern District of New York for their roles in a conspiracy to import and traffic in counterfeit perfume, the Justice Department said.
   Sanjay Anandani, 34, of Clinton, N.J., was arrested on Dec. 1 in Secaucus, N.J., and made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert M. Levy in the Eastern District of New York. Rohit Rohit, 28, of Edgewater, N.J., surrendered to authorities the next day and made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Cheryl L. Pollack in the Eastern District of New York.
   According to the indictment, Anandani and Rohit conspired with each other and others to traffic in counterfeit perfume. The indictment alleges the men imported three shipping containers with counterfeit perfume during 2009 and 2010, as well as 4,600 fragrance boxes bearing counterfeit perfume trademarks.
   The two-count indictment charges each defendant with conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods and trafficking in counterfeit goods. The conspiracy charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The trafficking charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $2,000,000 fine, the Justice Department said.
   This case was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). The case is being prosecuted by Senior Counsel Jason Gull of the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
