OSU football player Jeremiah Tshimanga files fraud claim with campus police

by Ryan Sharp Published: May 30, 2012

Oklahoma State football player Jeremiah Tshimanga says someone stole his ID and $700 from his bank account.

According to an incident report filed with the OSU police department, Tshimanga says a fellow OSU student accessed his account at Stillwater National Bank without his permission and made two transactions worth $700.

Tshimanga, a freshman linebacker, told police on May 18 that the bank showed him two pictures of the transactions — one for $500 and another for $200 — that were made on April 27. Tshimanga identified the person making the transactions.

The suspect's name was redacted from the incident report. Though the name was redacted, the suspect is listed as a 20-year-old black male, standing 5-feet-10 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.

Tshimanga told police he confronted the suspect, who confessed to taking the money out of the account.

The OSU police department was unable to contact the suspect because he does not live on campus and Tshimanga told them the suspect was not in Stillwater.

OSU police Capt. Richard Atkins told the Daily O'Collegian that Stillwater National Bank is not investigating the reported fraud because OSUPD has not completed its investigation.

Calls to the OSUPD for comment were referred to the OSU communications office, which did not immediately return calls. has disabled the comments for this article.
