Los Angeles police are hunting a mystery man who fled as they raided his apartment, leaving behind piles of bogus cash, high-tech counterfeiting equipment and weapons, it was reported Friday
The Los Angeles Times quoted police officers as saying that the 33-year-old suspect escaped from his high-rise apartment via a back window and via escape in a scene reminiscent of the "Bourne Identity" action films.
The 3,400-dollar-a-month penthouse's balcony was also directly opposite the US Federal Reserve Building in downtown Los Angeles.
"The curiosity in this case is the strategic location in which he chose to operate," Downing said.
