Amancio Alonso the owner and operator of MacMillan Oil and his corporate oil transporter, Hialeah Transport LLC, were each charged today with two counts of grand theft related to thefts from the City of Hialeah and from Miami-Dade Aviation. Both the City of Hialeah and Miami-Dade Aviation were making purchases midgrade (89 octane) gasoline from MacMillan Oil. An investigation revealed that MacMillan Oil purchased regular (87 octane) gasoline from Port Everglades and sold it to its customers as if it was midgrade (89 octane) gasoline thereby overbilling Hialeah and Miami-Dade Aviation about .07 cents per gallon purchased. Documents obtained from the City of Hialeah revealed that the City of Hialeah was overbilled by $46,911.94. Documents obtained from the Miami-Dade Aviation Department revealed that Miami-Dade Aviation Department was overbilled by $3,362.30.

I wanted to congratulate the detectives from Miami-Dade Public Corruption Unit and the State Attorney`s Office Public Corruption Task Force for putting together the pieces which led to these arrests. With the consumption of this gasoline, it could have been a very difficult crime to uncover, commentated Miami Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. Instead, we will be getting this money back to the City of Hialeah and Miami-Dade County.

As part of the investigation, detectives from Miami-Dade Public Corruption Unit and the State Attorney`s Public Corruption Task Force responded to MacMillan Oil Company and executed a search warrant of the premises to obtain the relevant documents. Amancio Alonso also admitted knowing that his drivers were delivering regular gasoline but he and Hialeah Transport were charging for a higher grade of gasoline. Alonso stated that this was done when there was an order for midgrade and the plant did not have enough of the midgrade blend.

Alonso stated that none of the staff of MacMillan Oil`s billing department were aware of the overbilling and they would just submit a bill based on the documents they received from the driver. Amancio Alonso was charged since he was the owner of both Hialeah Transport and MacMillan Oil, and was responsible for ordering the drivers employed by Hialeah Transport to falsify their delivery records. Hialeah Transport was charged since it employed the drivers that falsified the delivery tickets to the City of Hialeah and to Miami-Dade Aviation.
