More uncovered in “Operation Dirty Money” case


Authorities said Monday that the co-owners of the family business Diaz Supermarkets were involved in $35 million in fraudulent transactions. The scheme that the Diazes were allegedly involved in is popular in the contractor world, Alexopoulos said. Subcontractors are required to show proof of workers’ compensation coverage and they find ways around it.

Authorities seized $640,000 and three vehicles, Atwater said. Former employees said authorities raided and closed four stores Friday: Two were in Homestead at 1215 NE Eighth St. and 212 W Mowry Dr. One was in Naranja at 13501 Moody Dr., and another was at 151 Opa-locka Blvd., in Opa-locka.

The joint operation was part of “Operation Dirty Money,” which involves Atwater’s Division of Insurance Fraud, the Office of Financial Regulation, Miami-Dade County Police, the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Read more here
