Suspect accused in stealing Youngstown house from disabled, elderly woman

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown man is behind bars, after allegedly stealing a woman's home over the course of nearly two years. 

Sixty-year-old Pasha Alamin was indicted by the Mahoning County Grand Jury after what prosecutors say amounted to him effectively stealing a woman's home. 

According to prosecutors, a woman, who was 87 years old at the time, moved into a residential physical therapy home in 2016. 

Neighbors told police that not long after, Alamin moved into the home. Police say they received complaints about traffic coming and going from the home and suspected drug activity. 

A police report says officers went to check on the home several times and were shown a "fake rental agreement". 

According to the report, a concerned neighbor visited the now 89-year-old woman in May to tell her about the man living in her home. 

When the woman was contacted by police she told them that she had never agreed to sell or rent her home to anyone. 

Police say they then went to the home on Loveland Ave and found Alamin inside the home. A report says Alamin insisted he had an agreement to live in the house, but couldn't currently show it to officers because it was with his administrative assistant. 

Two weeks later, police returned to the home with a warrant for Alamin's arrest. 

Police reports indicate that officers knocked on the door several times, but did not get a response. 

Officers say they as they were attempting to pry the door open Alamin quickly opened the door, and was palced under arrest. 

A report says investigators then searched the home and found a gallon sized Ziploc bag with six individual bags of marijuana inside a cooler with digital scales nearby. 

According to Assistant Mahoning County Mike Yacavone, while they were there officers found that though the city had turned off the water to the property, the water was still running. 

While investigating police determined that Alamin had "rigged" the home so that though the utilities had been turned off, he was still receiving water and electric. 

Alamin was indicted on charges of theft from the elderly for allegedly stealing the home, breaking and entering for allegedly getting into the home, theft from the City of Youngstown, as well as a vandalism charge. 

Alamin has not yet been booked into the county jail on the charges. He faces additional charges in Youngstown Municipal Court for the alleged drug charges.
