Sheriff Arrests Bolingbrook Man for Forgery

Sheriff John Zaruba announced the arrest of a Bolingbrook man yesterday for Issue / Delivery of Forged Documents. 

Edgar I. Kim (dob/05/23/84) has been charged with one count Forgery which is a class 3 Felony for selling fake Blackhawk Tickets on Craigslist. 

The Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding a sale of fake Blackhawks tickets on Craigslist. The victim replied to an ad that was placed on Craigslist listing 2 Blackhawk tickets for sale. The victim contacted the suspect for the purchase of the tickets. They met at business in unincorporated DuPage County, where the victim purchased the tickets. It wasn’t until the victim went to the game that it was discovered that the tickets were not real tickets.  

The case was turned over to Sheriff’s Detectives who started investigating the sale of the fake tickets. Multiple leads were followed which led to the arrest of Kim, who is currently being held in the DuPage County Jail on $10,000.00 bond.
