ELK GROVE (CBS13) — An Elk Grove real estate agent is now accused of being involved in an international crime ring.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Heidi Phong helped Chinese national crime organizations buy homes in the Sacramento region, and convert them into illegal pot grows.
Phong owns HP Real Estate. The company has a retail store in an Elk Grove strip mall. CBS13 went to the office where employees said they were unaware of Phong’s arrest.
Federal agents arrested Phong in a traffic stop after she left her home Thursday morning.
Pictures on her website promote her as being a top seller in the area, including selling 15 times more homes than the average real estate agent.
