The suspects in question
Gregory Bland, 55; Temitayo David, 55; and Toyosi Ogunleye, 43, have been charged with theft by receiving.

Deputies said they began investigating after a California company was not paid for an order of 40 microscopes totaling $11,555.20 that was shipped to the warehouse on Eastgate Place in Snellville.

The order had appeared to come from an existing customer, but investigators learned that the microscope company had actually been victim of a business email compromise scheme, which is a type of phishing scam.

Investigators went to the warehouse on Feb. 23. They encountered Bland, who said he was allowed to live at the building in exchange for accepting packages for the owner, David, according to a sheriff’s office release.

During a search, investigators found the microscopes and other stolen items, including medical equipment and construction equipment, the release said.

All three suspects were arrested at the warehouse. David is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Detention Center. Bland and Ogunleye were released on $11,200 bond.
