Mohamed Gure and Mohamed Osman were charged with stealing from MTSU.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Two Middle Tennessee State University students have been charged with stealing over $114,000 from the school, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Mohamed Gure and Mohamed Osman, both 22, were indicted by a Rutherford County Grand Jury following a joint investigation by special agents with the TBI and the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury. The two Nashville men were arrested Tuesday, TBI spokesman Josh DeVine said.

The investigation came at the request of 16th District Attorney General Jennings Jones in November after university officials became suspicious of funds being used by the Somali Student Association and Muslim Student Association, according to a news release. Gure and Osman served as presidents of the Somali student group. 

“If proven to be true, we will pursue every appropriate legal and campus judicial action to hold those accountable and recoup the funds,” MTSU President Sidney McPhee said.
