$260,000 bond set for pair on ID theft charges

BOWLING GREEN - Bond was set at $260,000 yesterday for two men charged with trying to get a cash advance with a stolen credit card.

Bello K. Olamiji, 55, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was charged with five counts of identity fraud, five counts of receiving stolen property, and one count of attempted theft.

Paulino Ocante-Ca, 30, of Columbus was charged with five counts of complicity to receiving stolen property and complicity to attempted theft.

Both men were being held in the Wood County jail following their arraignment by video in Bowling Green Municipal Court.

The pair were arrested by Bowling Green police Monday morning after Mr. Olamiji was accused of going to Huntington Bank's South Main Street office and trying to get a $4,900 cash advance with a credit card that was declined.

He is accused of fleeing in a car driven by Mr. Ocante-Ca when the teller called bank security. Police pulled them over a short time later and seized five New York State identification cards inside the car that had different names but photos of Mr. Olamiji as well as five stolen credit cards with names that corresponded to the names on the ID cards, authorities said.
