A pregnant Turkish woman, arrested in a federal law enforcement-led raid in Dayton last week, was put on 24-hour home detention Tuesday, and her case transferred to United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Fanisa Shaydullina, 26, who is six months pregnant, was aided by a Russian language interpreter. Prosecutors told U.S. Magistrate Judge Sharon Ovington that Shaydullina has overstayed her visa by nearly two years and is in the country illegally.

The detention hearings of two other men arrested in the Aug. 23 raid in the 200 block of Allen Street will be Wednesday. A spokesman with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Ohio said those men are 28-year-old Muzaffar Mirsoliyev and 51-year-old Mustafo Mirsoliyev.

Charges against the three were not detailed at Tuesday’s hearing, but Montgomery County Jail records indicate Mustafo Mirsoliyev is being detained on a charge of wire fraud, Muzaffar Mirsoliyev on weapons violations and Shaydullina on weapons violations as well as the ICE detainer. All were booked into jail on Aug. 23.

Shaydullina’s assistant public defender, Art Mullins, argued for her to be put on detainer so she would not have to “give birth in prison.” Shaydullina has no criminal history, was not accused of a crime of violence and her husband is seeking citizenship, said Mullins.

According to U.S. Assistant Attorney Brent Tabacchi, computer forensics are being performed on a computer confiscated in the raid and that could lead to the filing of more charges.

Prosecutors moved Tuesday afternoon to unseal the search warrant affidavit. That affidavit had not been made available by late Tuesday afternoon.

The FBI, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Dayton Bomb Squad were among the agencies believed to have been searching Allen Street address on Aug. 23.

According to Montgomery County property records, the house is owned by a Sakhadin K. Ilyasov. There are no federal cases involving anyone with that last name.
