Newark, NJ – Today, the FBI’s Newark Field Office returned to the United States with fugitive Afzal Ahmad Khan (a/k/a Bobby Khan), 37, in custody.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for Khan on October 21, 2014, after he was charged with wire fraud.
Khan is wanted for allegedly defrauding customers and financial institutions while he was the owner of Emporio Motor Group, a car dealership in Ramsey. He fled the United States and was placed on the FBI-Newark’s Most Wanted list.
He was taken into custody in the United Arab Emirates and returned to the U.S. today.
"Mr. Khan came to the sobering reality that he could not outrun the FBI," said Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie.
"People who flee to other countries to avoid prosecution only delay the inevitable and live every day with the knowledge that we are still in pursuit. Mr. Khan obviously reached the conclusion that it wasn't worth it.
The Newark field office would like to thank the dedicated members of law enforcement whose hard work and determination forced the hand of this fugitive and will now bring him to justice."
SAC Ehrie thanked the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Ramsey Police Department for their assistance.
