New charges filed against mysterious man

LOS ANGELES In addition to the weapons charges, /*Brian Alexik*/, 34, is now accused of several narcotics offenses and forging money.

Alexik pleaded not guilty to the new charges. He is being held on $1-million bail.

In April, he evaded police by fleeing down a fire escape from his penthouse loft on West Olympic Boulevard.

Inside, authorities found counterfeiting equipment, freshly printed $100 bills and a giant mosaic replica of the /*CIA*/ seal.

Police also found a pair of high-powered binoculars and a tripod by the rear window which had a direct view of a neighboring federal building.

Authorities caught up with him after investigating a noxious smell coming from his loft.
