A West Babylon man was arrested Sunday and charged with trademark counterfeiting after police said detectives were alerted that he was selling counterfeited clothing and other items at his store in the Broadway Mall in Hicksville.

Tirath Chugh, 48, of Second Street, was arrested in Hicksville at 8:05 p.m. and charged with two counts of second-degree trademark counterfeiting and one count of third-degree trademark counterfeiting, Nassau County police said. He faces arraignment Monday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Police said the counterfeit goods were being sold at Premium Lounge, a store in the mall that Chugh owns. An Instagram site for the store shows pictures of new items in stock, labeled as designer T-shirts, pants, shoes and other types of clothing.
