CHICAGO — Chicago police have arrested a suburban man after officers spotted narcotics equipment for sale at his store on the city's West Side.

Police say 44-year-old Bruce Kim was working behind the counter on Monday afternoon when officers recovered $60,000 worth of equipment used by narcotics dealers — including digital scales, measuring spoons, baggies and a cutting agent used to mix narcotics.

The Hoffman Estates man was arrested on felony controlled substance possession charges. He was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney and a message seeking comment at his home was not immediately returned.
