The men arrested in a Friday raid to their rented Allen Street home in Dayton are suspected of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, illegally obtaining food stamps and a weapons charge.
Muzaffar Mirsoliyev, 28, and his 51-year-old father, Mustafo Mirsoliyev, both Turkish immigrants who were refugees from Uzbekistan in the mid-2000’s, had criminal complaints against them unsealed in United States District Court/Southern District of Ohio in Dayton.
Mustafo Mirsoliyev appeared at a detention hearing while Muzzafar’s hearing was delayed until Friday. Muzaffar’s Russian wife, Fanisa Shaydullina, faces a weapons charge and authorities say she has been in the country illegally for about two years. Shaydullina was previously identified as Turkish.
Unsealed search warrant affidavits obtained by the Dayton Daily News show that Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Michael Bush suspects the Mirsoliyevs of a scheme to defraud the United States Department of Agriculture and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
All three were arrested during a raid at 245 Allen Street in which multiple law enforcement agencies seized an AK-47 rifle and a computer.
Shaydullina, 26, who is six months pregnant, was put on 24-hour home detention Tuesday and her case will be transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Court records show Muzaffar and Shaydullina were married well after Shaydullina’s visa expired.
Bush’s affidavit states the Mirsoliyevs’ immigration records were checked various times in 2011 when they lived in Louisville, Ky. In April 2011, Mustafo Mirsoliyev formed a trucking business in Kentucky that showed bank deposits of $55,000 in 2011 and $92,000 in 2012.
In October 2011, the affidavit said Mustafo applied for food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). He used the food stamps card at Sam’s Club and Meijer.
Both Mirsoliyevs worked picking up and delivering cargo around the United States and sometimes left Shaydullina at home with the weapon. Illegal aliens are not allowed to possess weapons.
Shaydullina’s assistant public defender, Art Mullins, argued Tuesday for her to be put on detainer so she would not have to “give birth in prison.” Shaydullina has no criminal history, was not accused of a crime of violence and her husband is seeking citizenship, said Mullins.
According to U.S. Assistant Attorney Brent Tabacchi, computer forensics are being performed on a computer confiscated in the raid and that could lead to the filing of more charges.
The FBI, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Dayton Bomb Squad were among the agencies believed to have been searching Allen Street address on Aug. 23.
According to Montgomery County property records, the house is owned by a Sakhadin K. Ilyasov. There are no federal cases involving anyone with that last name.
