|A sign posted on the door of China Wok Express and Donuts today has a clear message for customers.|
Food supplies and furnishings still can be seen inside the restaurant at 26100 Newport Road in the old Albertson's shopping center. However, a sign on the door tells customers "We're very, very sorry. We'll be closed forever. Thank you for coming all (these) years."
FBI agents raided the business on Aug. 15, locking the doors and posting a "closed today" sign while they interviewed an employee inside. On the same day, agents visited a home in the 30400 block of White Fir Drive. According to city records, a resident of that home is the person listed as the owner of China Wok Express and Donuts -- Kan Leng Nhim.
A woman at the White Fir Drive address refused to open the door for a reporter today, saying Nhim was not at home.
Lourdes Arocho, spokesperson for the FBI's Los Angeles office, said she could not comment on the case because it is an ongoing investigation.
Residents say they have been going to China Wok Express and Donuts for years. Records show the business became an LLC in 2006.
