Miami (June 11, 2018) – A joint investigation involving the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office and the Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General has led to the arrest of Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) employee Marie Wagnac-Ricks after she allegedly used someone else’s debit/credit card, which the owner had inadvertently left behind in a Dade County Federal Credit Union (DCFCU) ATM machine on January 20, 2017.
Marie Wagnac-Ricks is a 28 year Miami-Dade County employee presently working as a uniformed Public Service Assistant at Miami International Airport (MIA).
The card’s owner, a Miami-Dade County Corrections Officer, reported to DCFCU the misuse of his card to make $210.26 of purchases at Wal-Mart and Chik-Fil-A. DCFCU referred the matter to the Miami-Dade County Office of the Inspector General (OIG) after their initial review indicated that the individual in possession of the debit/credit card was a Miami-Dade County employee.
The criminal investigation of this matter led to a review of the DCFCU Miami Gardens Branch ATM video and its derived still shots, which appeared to depict of Ms. Wagnac-Ricks in her Miami International Airport (MIA) uniform shirt with an MIA patch on the sleeve attempting three times to use the debit card at the DCFCU ATM. Ms. Wagnac-Ricks is the first person after the debit/credit card’s owner who stops to use the ATM machine. The materials also show Ms. Wagnac-Ricks wearing glasses and driving a white KIA four-door sedan bearing Georgia tag PCQ6244, which she later identified as her daughter’s car that Ms. Wagnac-Ricks was using.
Marie Wagnac-Ricks is being charged with 1 count of Grand Theft, a 3rd degree felony.
