21-year-old Nigerian man arrested in the U.S for using fraudulent checks to steal from restaurant

CRIME UPDATE – A 21-year-old Nigerian national Abdulrahaman Rosenje, is one of three men facing felony charges for using fraudulent checks to steal from a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, US.

Rosenje, of Kenosha, appeared in Columbia County Circuit Court via video from jail on Friday afternoon, October 6, charged with eight counts of felony forgery.

Assistant District Attorney Troy Cross requested Rosenje be held on a cash bond given the defendant’s lack of ties to the county as well as the sophistication of the alleged offenses as well.

“I don’t know of any ties to that particular area like a job or anything else and there was an allegation that he had been a Chicago resident before this, and I do not know of any Wisconsin or Illinois ID that he possesses,” Cross said. “The only thing that I’m aware of is a passport from, I think it was Nigeria.

Judge J. Andrew Voigt ordered Rosenje to be held on $2,000 cash bond, with his release conditioned on surrender of his passport within 24 hours of his release.

The case began when the Columbus Police Department was contacted by the owner of the Columbus Jimmy John’s sandwich shop, who reported that an employee, Austin Gruss, 19, of Columbus, had deposited fraudulent checks into his account amounting to nearly $5,000.

The checks, deposited on Sept. 1 in amounts between $272.12 and $752.87, totaled $4,796.89, all deposited through mobile banking. Additionally, the officer found that the recent spike in withdrawals was enough to require those deposits ahead of time.

Gruss told the officer on Sept. 6 that he met “Jay,” who was identified as Jalaldeen Olorundare, 18, in the dorms of Upper Iowa University in Fayette, Iowa. Gruss told he officer he had suffered a football injury and dropped out of the school.

Olorundare offered Gruss an arrangement in which money would be deposited into Gruss’ account for him to transfer to another account, minus $100, which would be enough to pay for gas to get Gruss home. Due to rules for sending money through Money Gram at Walmart, Gruss told the officer he could only send up to $450 at a time without having ID with him. To transfer deposits of $900, Gruss divided them in two, making multiple transfers of $450.

Olorundare reportedly told officers on Sept. 14 that he had an arrangement with someone named “Doulie,” who would transfer money if provided account information. That person was Rosenje, who Olorundare claimed had been running the operation since March, police said.

On Sept. 25, officers searched Rosenje’s home in Kenosha, finding several cellphones, a laptop, and a printer enabled for commercial check printing. In a safe, officers reported finding a replica pellet gun and 245 unprinted checks.

While being taken into custody, Rosenje reportedly asked about Olorundare, saying: “It’s not right that he keeps going to college and doesn’t get arrested. I get arrested, and he was part of this too.”

Defense attorney Amanda Riek said Rosenje and his aunt are renting a house in Kenosha, where he works, as she explained his living arrangement was more stable than it appeared to be.

“I don’t think he has been actively using (the passport),” Riek said. “He said the only time he left was when he went to visit his father and he had a temporary visa. He had and continues to have no intentions of leaving Wisconsin and if he is released he could still have his employment.”

Voigt pointed out that it seemed very possible Rosenje had never personally been to Columbia County prior to his arrest.

“That the defendant also possesses a passport at this point is somewhat disconcerting as well,” Voigt said, “even though there are no allegations of international flight associated with this, although it involves allegations of inter-state criminal conduct, which may be more problematic.”

Rosenje is scheduled to next appear in court for a Jan. 4 return hearing.

Gruss is scheduled to appear in court for identical charges on Nov. 1, while Olorundare is due in court on the same eight counts on Nov. 8.

The knife that the little girl referred to may have in fact been the penis of one of the boys who has already been charged with rape.

The little girl has been reported as being terrified.

Paveena called for CCTV to be installed at school toilets and authorities to reassess the positioning of toilets for young children on school compounds.

She said staff should be present at toilets used by young children.
