Suspended Miami Dade Police Department Detective Karel Rosario pled guilty today before Judge Teresa Pooler to the charge of Dealing in Stolen Property. This charge arose from Rosario`s actions during the execution of a May 20, 2015 Federal search warrant at the residence of Mrs. Yulia Martinez which resulted in her being taken into custody. It was during this incident that Detective Rosario took some very distinctive and expensive jewelry from the Martinez residence.
On May 27, 2015, Rosario was captured on video at the Seybold Jewelry Building meeting with a jeweler in an effort to sell a Cartier watch and Cartier style Nail bracelet. The uniqueness of the jewelry played a key role in Detective Rosario`s subsequent investigation by the Miami Dade State Attorney`s Office and the Miami-Dade Police Department and Rosario`s later arrest. Today`s plea to the court shows the effectiveness of the investigation and the strength of the criminal case.
Every police department depends on the integrity and professionalism of its officers, said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. Detective Rosario sold out his integrity the minute he picked up that jewelry. He has let down the good people of Miami-Dade County and every professional police officer who risks death each day to uphold our laws.
