Four men from New York were indicted by a Fulton County Grand Jury in connection with stolen property, forgery, and related crimes.
Indicted were Dylan Salamalay, 21, Hollis, N.Y.; Saif I. Ali, 20, and Asif Baksh, 23, South Ozone Park, N.Y.; and Rajiv Dudhnath 19, Richmond Hill, N.Y.
Scott Haselman, Fulton County prosecuting attorney, said the indictments result from an Ohio State Highway Patrol investigation.
The investigation started with a Sunday, June 25 traffic stop on the Ohio Turnpike.
The grand jury indicted all four men on ten counts of forgery.
Salamalay was additionally indicted on one count each, possessing criminal tools, tampering with evidence, and receiving stolen property.
A press release from Haselman said, “On or about June 25, he (Salamalay) allegedly possessed forged credit cards, allegedly possessed criminal tools, and allegedly tampered with evidence in a police investigation.
“He also allegedly received (discount store) gift cards, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe they had been obtained by a theft offense.”
Ali, Baksh, and Dudhnath were each indicted on single counts of possessing criminal tools and receiving stolen property, in addition to the forgery charges.
Haselman said the three “allegedly possessed forged credit cards and allegedly possessed criminal tools. (They) also allegedly received discount store) gift cards, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe they had been obtained by a theft offense.”
All four men posted bond and were released from the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio.
