CEDAR RAPIDS – An illegal alien from Kenya has been charged with a federal crime after he was caught in Iowa recently pointing long gun at people who passed by his house.

Kevin Oscar Naholi, 40, a Kenyan citizen residing in southwest Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has been charged with one count of possessing a firearm as an alien unlawfully in the United States. The charge is contained in a Complaint filed today in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.

Cedar Rapids

The Complaint alleges that on or about early Friday evening, August 25, 2017, Naholi was observed outside his residence pointing a long gun towards passersby. When police responded to the scene Napoli retreated into his residence and an eleven-hour standoff ensued. Cedar Rapids Police sought to negotiate with Naholi during that time but he refused to come out of the residence. At about 4:30 a.m. on August 26, 2017, a special response unit of the Cedar Rapids Police Department safely entered the residence and took Naholi into custody.

The complaint alleges Naholi entered the United States from Kenya in 2003 on a student visa. However, when Naholi failed to register for classes as required by the visa, the visa was revoked in 2004. Naholi subsequently sought unsuccessfully to gain lawful status in the United States.

If convicted on the charge in the Complaint, Naholi would face a possible maximum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, $100 in special assessments, and 3 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.­

Naholi appeared today in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was ordered detained without bond. The United States has 30 days in which to present this case to a grand jury for a formal charging decision.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Richard L. Murphy and is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Cedar Rapids Police Department.

NAHOLI, KEVIN OSCAR

    Carly…….. this site has attracted and has allowed very hate filled, derogatory and hurtful posting practices. In fact those submissions have almost become the norm. Who in their right mind would even consider disclosing their identity. Peter C has the courage to do so and I applaud him. But Peter L disclosed and look at the execution that followed. Until and unless this becomes a safe place I for one will remain sincerely anonymous.

      I did not ask anyone to disclose their identity, just differentiate yourself from all the other “anonymous”. I agree there are a lot of nasty comments and they come from people on both sides of the political spectrum. It would be nice if we could have some good honest back and forth without having the nasty remarks but I guess that is the norm for social media. Reading this news story one should be able to see that this man is clearly here illegally and just because you believe our immigration laws should be followed doesn’t make you a racist. You don’t have to be a trump supporter to have that belief.

    10 comments from anonymous posters. Are they one and the same just having a conversation with themselves?

      Good point Carly, it’s like that with every topic on this site, even the whiners den. Sometimes he/she/it/they use other posters names to cover up their rhetoric. Some have icons that identify them, other then that, it’s hard to tell one asshole from another. That’s my two cents on the subject, like it or not.

        So if I use the name George, Tim, John or Malcolm then I suddenly would not be anonymous anymore? I don’t know you from any of the other people named Allen in this world. The same goes for Carly You two are just as anonymous as the rest of us

          You missed the point I was making. You can’t distinguish one anonymous from the next. Call yourself what ever you want. I don’t care who you are. If there were two with my name I would change mine. I will take responsibility for my posts and stand by them.

            OK, I was just funning you there a little bit. On a serious note I would have to disagree somewhat with you and Allen. Although sometimes you cannot distinguish between anonymous posters I feel for the most part you can tell who is who buy their political views and they’re writing style. If you or Allan decided to use anonymous I believe I could still tell you guys apart. Those are just my thoughts.

    “…and 3 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.­”

    this is whats wrong with america. this guy shouldnt be here in the first place, yet after he has done his time we’re going to give him 3 years to disappear before we deport him back to africa.

    how about doing him AND america a favor: substitute his years of incarceration for a one-time beating like he has never seen and then set him on the first returning banana boat back to his real home?

    Wasn’t it Obama that encouraged anyone to gain access to this country illegally? AND once here hide under the protection of the local law ILLEGALLY? Now can you understand the person’s statement? No, probably not. Too stupid. You people play the race card so often that it has become a joke. Please apply it where applicable. Otherwise what you’re doing is a disservice to the black person. Don’t you get?

      The race card is offend used to describe Trump supporters because it is offend the truth. People like you get upset about it because sometimes the truth hurts.

          If you have to ask that question then maybe you need to look in the mirror.
