Photo Shop, Fraud Shop NR09300kr

Los Angeles:  The Joy Photo shop was shut down earlier today after the owner, Sung Ok Park, 51 years of age, was arrested for “Manufacturing and Distribution or Sale of False Citizenship or Resident Alien Documents.”

On June 23, 2009, at around 2:20 p.m., the Los Angeles Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security, in a multi-agency task force, served a search warrant at the Joy Photo Shop located at 2065 West 6th Street.  The multi-agency task force has been conducting an on-going investigation in the area of MacArthur Park related to the manufacturing and distribution of fraudulent California Drivers License and Identification Cards, "Green Cards," and Social Security Cards.  

The MacArthur Park area is known to Law Enforcement and the public for the blatant selling and distribution of fake ID’s and documents.  These fake documents are often used to facilitate crimes such as identity theft, benefit fraud, forgery, juvenile delinquency, evasion of justice and potentially acts of terrorism.  

It is a known fact that many of Rampart’s most notorious street gangs are financed through these types of criminal enterprises.  

Park is being held on $75,000 bail.

Anyone with information about this, or other similar crimes, is asked to call the Rampart Gang Impact Team, Sergeant Richard Lozano at 213-484-3450.  After hours or on weekends, calls may directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website www.lapdonline.org.  All tips will remain anonymous.
