UTICA – The Utica man who is accused of making threats against Utica College and causing a lockdown on campus has been indicted on charges for an unrelated incident.
Fahrudin Omerovic, 23, was indicted Thursday by an Oneida County Grand Jury on charges of felony identity theft and misdemeanor petit larceny.
Omerovic is accused of using a family friend’s credit card to purchase two vacuum cleaners from Utica College’s online bookstore, totaling $564.18, which he then had delivered to the bookstore in his own name, according to police.
Omerovic will appear in court again on June 12 to give his answer on a plea offer. On that same day, he will also have a Huntley Hearing related to his charges of making a terroristic threat.
Last week Omerovic rejected a plea deal offered by the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office for the terroristic threat charges, and he’s now headed to trial for that case.
