FBIaAgents determine that vacation Oliver planned is a permanent one. He was found guilty and sentenced in absentia to 20 years in federal prison.
Odowa Roland Okuomose: The Check Is In The Mail
Odowa Roland Okuomose is wanted for his alleged involvement in a lottery scheme where the players lose big and he's the only winner. Law enforcement says victims of the scam receive letters in the mail claiming they are the winner of a lottery prize. The victims are asked to pay a fee to claim winnings they never receive. After being released on bail, Okuomose disappears and investigators believe he could easily be running the same scam wherever he is.
