Fahrudin Omerovic/ Utica Police

The man accused of making terroristic threats against Utica College has been indicted on charges for an unrelated incident.

According to WKTV, Fahrudin Omerovic, 23, was indicted Thursday by an Oneida County Grand Jury on charges of identity theft and petit larceny.

Omerovic is accused of using a family friends credit card to purchase two vacuum cleaners from the Utica College bookstore coasting about $564, according to WKTV. Police say he had the vacuums delivered to the school bookstore under his own name.

Omerovic will appear in court again on June 12 to give his answer for a plea offer. WKTV reports he will also have a pre-trial hearing that same day related to his charges of making a terroristic threat.

Earlier this month, he rejected a plea deal offered by the Oneida County District Attorney’s office and will go to trial.
