DAYTON—Kevin R. Cornelius, Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Cincinnati Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), today announced that the FBI recently arrested three family members on criminal complaints for alleged wire fraud and firearms violations.
Muzaffar Mirsoliyev, 28, of Dayton, Ohio, was charged with aiding and abetting possession of a firearm by an individual illegally in the United States, wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
Fanisa Shaydullina, 26, of Dayton, Ohio, was charged with possession of a firearm by an individual illegally in the United States. Shaydullina is the wife of Muzaffar Mirsoliyev.
Mustafo Mirsoliyev, 51, of Dayton, Ohio, was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Mustafo Mirsoliyev is the father of Muzaffar Mirsoliyev.
All three suspects were taken into custody by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) on Friday, August 23, 2013. The JTTF is made up of officers and agents from Cincinnati Police Department, Colerain Police Department, Dayton Police Department, Harrison Police Department, Ohio State Highway Patrol, United States Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, United States Secret Service, and the West Chester Police Department.
SAC Cornelius commended the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security Investigations directorate (ICE), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the cooperation they provided during this investigation.
The criminal complaints filed by U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart’s Office on behalf of the FBI in this investigation were recently unsealed by a U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge. The public is reminded that criminal complaints contain only allegations of criminal misconduct and that defendants are presumed to be innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
