At about 3 p.m. Monday, police were conducting a license check at the store on the 0-20 block of North Pulaski Road when officers discovered a large amount of narcotics equipment displayed for sale, according to a news release. An investigation led police to recover the following: "a multitude of boxes containing self-sealing zip-lock Baggies, large amounts of cutting agent used to mix narcotics, numerous digital scales and blenders, measuring spoons and sifters," the release stated.

Kim was working behind the counter of the store at the time and then was taken into custody.

He was released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond after appearing before a Cook County judge Tuesday.

Kim is due back in court July 1.
