Trial Opens in L.A. Marijuana Warehouse Robbery Involving Ex-Deputy Sheriff

A federal criminal trial got underway Tuesday in downtown Los Angeles for a former warehouse employee who allegedly conspired with a corrupt Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy to rob his former employer of over 1,200 pounds of marijuana and $645,000 in cash.

Christopher Myung Kim is facing conspiracy, marijuana possession and firearms charges in connection with the early morning armed robbery in Los Angeles on Oct. 29, 2018.

Through his attorney, Kim denied all charges.

Prosecutors allege that Kim provided inside information and blueprints to co-conspirators who posed as armed deputies purporting to execute a lawful search of the warehouse.
