Officers uncovered an AK-47, ammunition, narcotics, fraudulent identification cards and $15,000 in counterfeit U.S. currency inside Alexik's unit, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
On Tuesday, the LAPD released photos of Alexik, saying he was wanted on three felony counts in connection with the investigation at his apartment in the 400 block of West Olympic Boulevard. The counts are possession of assault weapons, possession of a short-barrel shotgun and being a convicted felon with a gun.
Police say the 33-year-old was using his apartment to manufacture illegal weapons parts and to print counterfeit currency.
He is described as white with brown hair, hazel eyes, about 5-feet 10-inches tall and weighing 180 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Daniel Logan of the LAPD's major crimes unit at (213) 486-7386.--Robert J. Lopez
