“Jason Bourne” counterfeiting suspect arrested in LA

LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) had looked for Brian Alexik, a 33-year-old New Jersey man, since April, when they followed firefighters to an upscale LA highrise, after a neighbor smelled fumes and firefighters who responded were denied entry. Police had dubbed the suspect “Jason Bourne,” after the film series starring Matt Damon.

When police broke down the door, a man inside escaped through a back window and down a fire escape carrying duffel bags. The apartment contained a cache of weapons, including an AK-47, “lots of drugs,” and sophisticated counterfeiting equipment! There was also $15,000 in counterfeit $100 bills and a camera tripod. Photography takes many forms! :-)

When police looked out the window of the $3,400-a-month penthouse, they noticed that the balcony had a direct view of the U.S. Federal Reserve building on Grand Avenue. Police detectives were unsure of exactly what they were dealing with, since they also found multiple IDs, including multiple passports with different aliases for the man. Photos in the apartment allegedly show Alexik with very different looks, including one of a “clean-shaven” man ( :-) as a man with a beard, I LOVE that phrase!) smiling with a glass of wine, and another of a bearded man with a bandana on his head.

Police surrounded a hotel off Hewitt Street near Little Tokyo in downtown LA, after police noticed a woman who matched the description of Brian Alexik’s girlfriend. Police took Alexik and his girlfriend into custody.
