COHOES – Three people are arrested, accused of defrauding the Department of Social Services of $10,000. Even though police knew who they were looking for, tracking down the whereabouts of one of the suspects took a little extra work.
Lailuma Meherdil, 44, was arrested at her Cohoes home. Her husband, Amirjan Hayatullah, 47, was working in Louisiana employed by the United States Government as a translator on an army base, where police say he earned $150,000 a year.
The following week, police learned Hayatullah had returned home, but say they learned he threatened to kill his wife if she revealed his whereabouts.
Police found Hayatullah by secretly following the couple’s son, Neshat Hayatullah, to a hiding location in a wooded area on Manor Avenue.
The three suspects now face several charges.
