Arrest of Interest/Crime Trends - Officers Arrest Alhambra Man for ID and Mail Theft, Narcotics, and other charges.

The crime of identity theft is quite often coupled with other crimes. This week saw a case where a suspect was arrested for ID and mail theft, narcotics possession, and attempted grand theft. Overnight on April 24th, officers came across a man sleeping in a car with no license plates behind a commercial business on Baldwin Avenue. The officers woke the man and while talking with him they discovered he was in possession of several California Identification Cards in the names/photos of other persons. The man presented one of the identification cards to officers saying it was him. During their investigation, the officers found items of mail, tax information, and bank statements belonging to other people, along with Heroin and Methamphetamine inside the car.

Kingsley Shum, a 34-year-old man from Alhambra was arrested and booked at the Arcadia City Jail on felony charges. Detectives continue their investigation and believe Shum to be the suspect in additional identity theft cases.
