As a result of a joint Miami-Dade County Police Department, Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General and Miami-Dade State Attorney`s Office investigation, Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Employee Siul Delgado was arrested on Thursday June 11, 2015 and charged with one count of Organized Scheme to Defraud under $20,000.
The investigation started via information from a confidential source in April of 2015 indicating that Delgado was possibly dispensing county gasoline at a private home located at 16988 SW 141 Court, Miami-Dade County. Further investigation and surveillance indicated a pattern of suspicious gasoline movements utilizing a County-owned pick-up truck containing gas and diesel tanks on its bed. Normally, such trucks are used to pump fuel into County landscape equipment being used at various sites around Miami-Dade.
Investigative surveillance revealed a number of fuel fillings, in excess of normal usage, and unexplained movements of the fuel truck to the 16988 SW 141 Court address, followed by the operating sound of the fuel truck pump. Other surveillance showed Delgado adding county fuel to his own private vehicle and also leaving 5 bags of county fertilizer at the same SW 141 Court location.
Individuals who feel that they are entitled to use and steal county property have no place in our county workforce, commented State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. A public salary never allows anyone to become a public thief.
We value our continuing partnership with the Miami-Dade Police Department and the State Attorney`s Office. Confidential complaints from honest employees and citizens sent to us enable our agencies to root out those who violate the public`s trust, said Miami-Dade County Inspector General, Mary T. Cagle.
