JPD seeks possible fraud victims

Suspicion a Juneau man possessed drugs lead to a search warrant that uncovered a second man with false identification, and the Juneau Police Department is now looking for merchants who may have been defrauded by those fake ID cards.

JPD officers, along with personnel from Southeast Alaska Chiefs Against Drugs, served a search warrant on a residence in the 100 block of Front Street. In the residence, JPD contacted Sung Hun Bag, 40, who had fake identification cards. Officers arrested Hun for second-degree forgery, a class ‘C’ felony. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

JPD is now looking for merchants who might have been defrauded by someone presenting fake IDs. Anyone who might have been defrauded by the use of checks or credit cards issued to the following names is asked to contact JPD:

• Fui Wan Lee

• Fui W Lee

• Fui-wan Lee

• Duk Kyung Lee

• Duk Ku Lee

• Kyung Ja Choi

• Moon Su Hwang

• Dong il Byun

• Dong Byun

• Kyuk H Kim

• Sung Nun Bag

JPD can be reached at 586-0600.

The warrant was issued after JPD and SEACAD contacted Angelo Bruce Kim, 51, because the agencies had information Kim might be in possession of drugs. Law enforcement did in fact find 6.2 grams of methamphetamine in Kim’s possession and arrested him for fourth degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, a class ‘C’ felony. The residence subsequently searched was Kim’s.

This Day in Juneau History: Feb. 23, 1987

On Feb. 23, 1987, Alaska House lawmakers voted 22-17 to transfer all of the $426 million from the Alaska budget reserve to the general fund to cover state bills. However, the clause that would have made the bill effective immediately after it was passed by both the Legislature and Gov. Steve Cowper was not passed, meaning that the bill will not go into effect until 90 days after Cowper’s signature and therefore not in time to stop a state cash flow crisis predicted to occur on March 9.
