WANTED: Brian Alexik: Had AK47 Assault Rifle, Counterfeit Currency, Bogus ID Cards In Apartment Overlooking Federal Reserve Building In Los Angeles

Brian AlexikBrian Alexik, 33, is wanted by Los Angeles police, and the police department and the U.S. Secret Service have opened a probe after an AK47 assault rifle, ammunition, a camera tripod, narcotics, counterfeit currency and other contraband was found inside Alexik’s apartment.

The apartment overlooks a branch of the U.S. Federal Reserve in Los Angeles, and Alexik fled the apartment carrying duffel bags, escaping through a rear window. Officers had come to the apartment to investigate a report of “noxious fumes,” police said.

Police did not say whether they believed Alexik was plotting a bigger crime involving the Federal Reserve, but have told local media they regard the location of the apartment as an element of their investigation.

Alexik is known to use at least two aliases: Briane Alexia and Ken Shurin. He is listed as “armed and dangerous.”

Police described him as a “white man of Russian descent, brown hair, hazel eyes, 5 feet 10 inches tall, and 180 lbs.”

Alexik is believed to be in the business of manufacturing both weapons parts and narcotics, police said. A known associate of Alexik has been arrested and booked on charges of possession of crystal methamphetamine.

The associate’s name is Gregory Charles Koller, 32. Police say he faces additional charges of weapons violations and possession of marijuana.

Police who executed a search warrant at Alexik’s apartment found “several loaded weapons, misc live ammunitions, US currency, fraudulent ID cards, counterfeit US currency, misc narcotics,” authorities said.

Alexik is a convicted felon.

“Based on the evidence recovered at the location it was apparent that . . . Alexik . . . was illegally manufacturing weapon parts for illegal weapons, and printing counterfeit currency,” police said.  “He had escaped through a rear window of the apartment complex prior to officers’ arrival.

“Alexik is wanted on three felony counts stemming from this investigation; possession of assault weapons, possession of a short barrel shotgun, and convicted felon with a gun,” police said.

Anyone with information about Alexik is asked to contact LAPD Major Crimes Division, Det. Daniel Logan at 213-486-7386. During nonbusiness hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
