|Jose Valladares, 24, Charged with Grand Theft
How did the investigators stumble onto this fraud? Here is what the article, by Herald reporter Douglas Hanks, states in part:
A top county official said the misconduct came to light once Miami-Dade launched an automated system for county garages last year, ending the requirement that daily users of the parking garages pay cash in most garages. A week later, the county’s parking revenues had doubled.
The county garages have been in operation for years and years. Why does Jose take the fall? Why not the "top county officials" who set up this operation in the first place and allowed it to proceed, year after year?
Go get 'em, Doug.
