updated: Mar 20, 2017, 10:29 AM

Source: SLO Sheriff's Office

TYPE OF INCIDENT: False ID "Operation Trap Door"

DATE AND TIME OF INCIDENT: 03-16-17

PLACE OF OCCURRENCE: San Luis Obispo

VICTIM INFORMATION: Not Applicable

SUSPECT INFORMATION: Jesse Ryan Hynes, 20 years old of Berkeley; Joon Hyok Park, 20 years old of San Luis Obispo; Kendra Nicole Rekevics, 20 years old of San Luis Obispo; Emily Janice Joachim, 20 years old of San Luis Obispo

DETAILS OF NEWS RELEASE: On 03-16-17, the San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office's Alcohol Compliance Team (ACT) operated a California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) grant funded enforcement program in San Luis Obispo aimed at combating the illegal possession of false identification to obtain alcohol. The program dubbed "Operation Trap Door" coordinates with on-sale licensed alcohol establishments to notify law enforcement upon detection of false ID presentation. Once notified, a team of deputy sheriffs specifically trained in ABC enforcement programs and an ABC Agent were available to respond immediately to detain and arrest those in possession of false ID. Law enforcement officials and retailers report that the use of false ID contributes significantly to underage alcohol access. "False" identification includes counterfeit and altered ID's as well as ID's that are real, but borrowed from another person. Young people easily obtain false ID through various sources increasing the need for enhanced enforcement efforts aimed at curbing illegal ID possession and access to alcohol. On 03-16-17 between the hours of 6:00pm and 2:00am (03-17-17), the ABC Agent and Deputy Sheriff team arrested four (4) persons for possession of false identification when those illegitimate ID's were presented at downtown San Luis Obispo nightclub establishments. Two additional false IDs were seized by on-sale establishments and turned over to the ACT team during the operation. All four arrestees (listed above) were released on their signed promise to appear (citations) and will be charged through the District Attorney's Office with violations of Business & Professions Code ยง 25661(a), a misdemeanor. The Sheriff's Office will be continuing ABC grant funded operations through June 30, 2017 unless otherwise extended with additional grant funding. Ongoing programs include minor decoy deployment, shoulder tap operations, on-sale and off-sale licensee monitoring, and further Operation Trap Door merchant coordination.
