Winneshiek County authorities have identified a young man seen in a surveillance video, who was allegedly involved in a burglary incident in Calmar.


19 year old Abdihakim Osman of Postville, was taken into custody shortly after 2am Thursday (Aug. 16) in Frankville. Osman was arrested on a warrant for Identity Theft and Unauthorized Use of a Credit Card.

The Winneshiek County sheriff had asked the public to help identify the man captured in a surveillance video, by posting his image on the sheriff's Facebook page on August 4th. Someone apparently came forward and identified the person as Osman.

The case is still under investigation; other persons of interest are being sought, and more charges pending.
