CHICAGO — Police have arrested a Hoffman Estates man after they found more than $60,000 worth of "narcotics packaging and equipment" in a West Garfield Park store.
The store's owner, 44-year-old Bruce Kim, has been charged with two felonies in connection with the drug paraphernalia.
About 3 p.m. Monday, officers were checking the license of the store, which is located in the 0-20 block of North Pulaski Road, when they saw a "large amount of narcotics equipment displayed for sale," according to a police statement.
After investigating further, police found dozens of boxes "containing self-sealing ziplock baggies, large amounts of cutting agents used to mix narcotics, numberous digital scales and blenders, measuring spoons and sifters," according to the statement.
Police arrested Kim, who was working behind the store's counter at the time. The 44-year-old is expected to appear in bond court Thursday.
