Arrests for Organized Scheme to Defraud


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

 The Miami-Dade Police Department, Public Corruption Investigations Bureau (PCIB), along with the United States Department of Labor, Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations; the State of Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud; and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, announces the arrest of one former owner and four former employees of AZJ Medical Center for their role in an insurance fraud scheme.

In January of 2011, PCIB detectives were contacted by the State of Florida, Attorney General’s Office regarding possible insurance fraud involving County employees.   On August 15, 2012, seven county employees were arrested and charged with Insurance Fraud, Grand Theft and Patient Brokering.  Today’s arrests stem from that initial investigation, and involve the former owners and staff members of AZJ Medical who orchestrated the scheme.  In total, the subjects defrauded Miami-Dade County in excess of $129,000.

Elvis Garcia Perez, one of the former owners of AZJ Medical, remains at large.
