As we told you last night, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida was arrested on charges of bank fraud, identity theft and more. The criminal complaint is a doozy and we have decided to share a large portion of it here with you because it's a good read and worth your time. Grab your morning coffee and a couple dozen doughnuts and prepare to settle in for a tale that reads like an episode of your favorite crime series.
The criminal complaint was filed on January 21st and Apollo's arrest warrant was issued the same day. Here's the complaint's intro, "From on or about September 1, 2010 in Fulton County, in the Northern District of Georgia, and elsewhere, defendant did, knowingly and willfully execute and attempt to execute a scheme to defraud federally insured financial institutions by depositing stolen and fraudulently obtained checks and fraudulently obtained auto loan proceeds into bank accounts opened in the stolen identities of real persons, and conspire with others to do so, and knowingly convert to his use and the use of others stolen and fraudulently obtained United States Treasury Checks, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section(s) 641, 1028A, 1344 and 1349."
Here are the charges against Apollo: "there is probable cause to believe that NIDA has committed violations of Title 18, United States Code, Section 641 (embezzlement, theft and conversion of public money); Title 18, United States Code, Section 1028A (aggravated identity theft); Title 18, United States Code, Section 1344 (bank fraud); and Title 18, United States Code, and Section 1349 (conspiracy)."
It seems that two things sealed the deal for Apollo's arrest: his "right hand b****, Gayla St. Julien, and damning evidence (more than a thousand pieces of it) found on his seized laptop.
