Authorities say the owner of a Beverly Hills beauty salon is accused of fraud after she used credit card information from celebrity clients such as Liv Tyler to ring up hundreds of thousands of dollars in bogus charges.

Maria Gabriella Perez was arrested Wednesday by Secret Service agents at her business, Chez Gabriela Studio.

The 51-year-old was charged with two counts of fraud that carries a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.

It wasn't immediately known if she had an attorney.

Court documents show that more than $214,000 in fraudulent charges were made from Perez's business to two credit cards belonging to Tyler last year.
