City of Miami Assistant Fire Chief Veldora Arthur federally indicted for mortage fraud.
Here's the indictment...
veldora arthur indictment
Consider for a moment who Ms. Arthur is within the City of Miami Fire Department, oddly enough her responsibility is to oversee the financial matters of the Fire Department including payroll and procurement. Who exactly do we have behind the controls at the City of Miami? Ms. Arthur makes $184,336.44 as an assistant fire chief, in this day and age, is that not enough to get by on?
What's even more disturbing is the fact that she was arrested ten days ago on an indictment from late 2010, yet we haven't even heard a peep out of the local media. What happened to the perp walk or the press release? Ms. Arthur and crew were charged with a nearly $11,000,000 mortgage fraud scam and the media is mute? What gives here folks?
Ms. Arthur is out on $125,000 bond, we'll have a full break down of the indictment coming on Wednesday, stay tuned.
