Michael King Lim Sought for Selling Phony Theme Park Tickets Thanks to Arrested Brother
After a Buena Park police sting that resulted in the arrest of Raymond John Lim, 23, of Walnut, for allegedly making and selling counterfeit tickets to Knott's Berry Farm and other Southern California theme parks, attention shifted to his brother, Michael King Lim.
That's because Raymond implicated his 33-year-old brother, who remains at large, in the scam, according to Buena Park police spokesman Corporal Andy Luong.

Luong's agency got hip to someone for months selling phony theme park tickets through personal ads on craigslist and that the sellers and buyers were meeting in the parking lots of apartment complex, shopping center, Starbucks, In-N-Out and Denny's locations throughout Orange Riverside, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.
The counterfeiters are believed to have made tens of thousands of dollars, said Luong, who added the Buena Park Police Department (BPPD) sting to catch the criminals was conducted last Friday.
Now, following the arrest of Raymond Lim, Buena Park police are hoping the public can help them find Michael Lim. Anyone who believes they have been sold counterfeit tickets are also asked to contact Buena Park Police Detective Alfonzo at 714.562.3976.
