INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A New York man who’s among six Bosnian immigrants accused of funneling money and military supplies to terror groups in Iraq and Syria was arrested in central Indiana in early February.
FBI spokeswoman Wendy Osborne said Friday that 26-year-old Nihad Rosic of Utica, New York, was arrested Feb. 6 outside of a business in Plainfield, just southwest of Indianapolis.
Federal prosecutors indicted Rosic, two Illinois women and three people from St. Louis County on Feb. 5.
Rosic was arrested the same day President Barack Obama visited Indianapolis, but Osborne says it was “entirely coincidental.”
A federal magistrate later approved Rosic’s transfer from the Marion County Jail to St. Louis by the U.S. Marshals Service, and jail records show he was released Feb. 11.
