BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A 37-year-old Brighton man arrested in March for allegedly running a criminal enterprise out of a kiosk in Downtown Crossing has been indicted on additional charges.
Shahab "David" Yousheei was indicted Thursday by a Suffolk County Grand Jury on charges that include money laundering, possession of counterfeit marks, attempt to receive stolen property over $250, and conspiracy.
Youhsheei's brother, Sharon "Aaron" Yousheei, 27, also of Brighton, was indicted on charges of money laundering, possession of counterfeit marks, attempt to receive stolen property over $250, attempt to receive stolen property under $250, possession of a fraudulent credit card, and conspiracy.
Two other men, including Yousheei's former employee, were also indicted.
The former employee, Manuel Calderon, 22, of Roslindale, is charged with money laundering, attempt to receive stolen property over $250, attempt to receive stolen property under $250, and conspiracy.
Gregory Andre, 27, of Randolph, has been indicted by a Plymouth County Grand Jury on identity fraud, larceny by scheme over $250, larceny over $250, and conspiracy charges.
Yousheei was arrested on in the Boston Common in March after he reportedly purchased counterfeit money. His brother was also arrested.
The arrest of the Yousheei brothers was the result of an investigation involving the attorney general's office, Boston and Mass. State police, and the U.S. Secret Service.
The Yousheei brothers are accused of working with Andre to purchase and resell jewelry they believed was stolen. The brothers were also found in possession of seven counterfeit watches, which they offered for sale as being genuine, high-end pieces. Aaron Yousheei was also reportedly in possession of stolen credit card information.
In addition to the jewelry sales, the men are accused of using fraudulent identities to open up new cell phone accounts. Investigators claim the men would then use those accounts to buy and sell phones at a reduced price.
