Juneau Police, working with state and federal law enforcement personnel, have arrested two men accused of drug and forgery charges.
The first arrest came at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, when 51-year-old Angelo Bruce Kim was taken into custody in the 4000 block of Vintage Boulevard. According to a JPD release, officers got a tip that Kim was possibly in possession of drugs. The release says they found 6.2 grams of methamphetamine on him. Kim is charged with 4th degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, a class C felony. He was booked at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
Continuing their investigation, officers served a search warrant on Kim’s residence in the 100 block of Front Street. There they arrested 40-year-old Sung Hun Bag, who allegedly gave officers a fake ID. He was charged with 2nd degree forgery, a class C felony and also lodged at Lemon Creek.
