Disneyland scamster arrested again in Glendale

A Hollywood woman who was convicted in May for selling bogus Disneyland tickets to families, was arrested this weekend and charged for the third time in Glendale after allegedly peddling drugs from her mother's condominium, police said.

Alisa Yenokyan, 22, was also charged with two counts of possessing a controlled substance for sale and one count of possessing ammunition following her arrest on Sunday, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

She and two men — Oganes Davityan, 22, and Eduard Hakopyan, 26 — were taken into custody about 4 p.m. in connection with drug sales after police received an anonymous tip about suspicious people hanging around the 300 block of West California Avenue, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

They reportedly had been seen in neighborhood for the past few weeks and were suspected of being engaged in drug activity.

When officers arrived, police said they noticed a plastic bag containing a white powdery substance inside the garage where Yenokyan and the men were gathered.

After getting permission from Yenokyan's mother to search the garage, officers discovered two meth pipes, small packages of cocaine, a large rock of cocaine, a paperclip with heroin attached to the tip and a small baggie of meth, police said.

That same day, officers obtained a warrant and allegedly found more heroin, meth and cocaine — some of which had been individually packaged.

They also discovered a digital scale, methadone pills and a needle, police said, as well as 120 rounds of ammunition in a purse.

Inside the home, police said they discovered a pay and owe ledger, and Disneyland tickets stemming for the earlier scam.

Hakopyan and Davityan denied any association to the drugs, police said. But according to police, Yenokyan was not cooperative and refused to talk.

Yenokyan's latest run-in with Glendale police comes three weeks after she was arrested at the Americana at Brand on suspicion of robbery after she allegedly punched a loss prevention worker who saw her stealing beauty cream products.

She is still expected to appear in court July 2 in that case, and has yet to be sentenced for selling the fake Disneyland e-tickets for $50 to at least a half dozen families via Craigslist.

Yenokyan is scheduled to be sentenced June 21 on seven felony counts of forgery and one felony count of grand theft for the fraud scheme, which police say went on for years.

She also faces a misdemeanor count of conspiracy to commit burglary and three felony counts of burglary, attempted theft and forgery for an alleged theft incident in Las Vegas, according to Clark County court records.
