A joint investigation by the Miami Dade Police Department Public Corruption Investigations Bureau, the Public Corruption Unit of the Miami-Dade State Attorney`s Office with the assistance of United States Department of Housing & Urban Development, Office of Inspector General has led to the arrest of two individuals in a cash for housing scheme which let individuals willing to pay reside in housing created to help the homeless.
Carlos Enrique Vazquez, a current City of Miami Homeless Assistance Program Outreach employee, and Odalys Lovett Delisle, an associate of Mr. Vasquez received a $5,000 fee to falsely qualify an individual to allow her to live in transitional housing intended to help Miami-Dade`s homeless population. According to investigators, Mr. Vazquez told the individual that once he got her into the housing program, she could remain in the program for life rather than just the 3 months for which the program was designed. Ms. Delisle met directly with the individual and received the payment on Mr. Vazquez` behalf.
Carlos Enrique Vazquez and Odalys Lovett Delisle are both charged with: Official Misconduct ; Unlawful Compensation; and Bribery.

The real victims of this fraud are needy homeless individuals who lose out on housing while some greedy individuals put money in their own pockets, commentated State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. I know that I speak for our entire law enforcement community when I say that this will stop
