We finally got the NCIC logs from the City of South Miami! Also, the Miami New Times gives us a mention...




A few weeks back we discussed the possibility of members of law enforcement abusing the federal NCIC (National Crime Information Center) database in order to find information on people that they had non business investigating.  Specifically we wondered if embattled City of South Miami police chief, Orlando Martinez de Castro, had been abusing his access to the database to get the goods on his political foes.  I put in a public information request to the city requesting their NCIC request logs and after a few weeks, I finally go this...



Interesting.  We're going to discuss this request log in detail tomorrow, in the mean time, take a good look at the people that the Chief himself requested information on, are any of our readers on that list?  There's a couple of surprises there and those particular requests clearly outline what kind of cop the chief is and just how he operates his department.

In the mean time, our friends over at the Miami New Times did a story on our involvement in the recent bank fraud case that we helped build with the feds, take a look.

  1. I see Warren Popove in the list, was that run prior to his arrest?

    1. Yes. It was run on 5/25/12 and Papove was arrested 7/06/12. Seems it took the chief a bit over a month to get his buddy Ramon Bado at ICE to fabricate a backdated wanted poster for an alien who was helping single women maintain their houses and yards in the neighborhood where he lived as a welcome guest. Though Bado denies it, he is still involved in Orlando's dirty deeds within the city. Nobody is safe.

  2. Mike,

    Congrats on your great detective work in the boat bank fraud case!

  3. Why did you ask for the City's NCIC hand-written logs? You should have requested a query history report of all South Miami Police NCIC queries; these can't be falsified like the hand-written log they gave you.

    1. Good idea, though the chief can falsify digital printouts. Look at the earlier postings of this blog where someone in his family circle photoshopped logs from Airways Auto Tag Agency. What protection is there for anyone when a dishonest police chief is involved?

  4. Do yourself a favor and a request a TAR report from the FDLE also. When you are the squeaky wheel you get the grease for sure but you also get run so retribution can take place.. When you get your information post it.. I was run multiple times even though I am not under investigation.. Hmmmm

  5. Sure, Orlando uses NCIC to investigate Papove to try to smear Welsh, and sure he uses it to investigate Stoddard, but why use it to investigate Brothers To The Rescue founder Jose Basulto? Seems that there in factional fighting among Cubans, Orlando being best buds of Batista secret service agent Camilo Padreda. Basulto is what they call a super voter. Someone go tell him he could clean up on the SMPD like Trooper Watts did !

  6. I wonder why Mayor Stoddard was looked up?

    Can say because of the home burglary, because that happens in June 2011? and the Mayor according to this report was searched in March?

    Word has it that a request should be done on the reports/runs that come from Sweet Water PD?

    All of this is a joke!

  7. Someone should make a public records request to determine the City of South Miami and the Florida League insurance company's total payout on settlement of the Watts case. Watts pay day may inspire others to file suit against the City of South Miami.

  9. Why are there so many entries in the NCIC log that are blacked out and how can we see what they are?

  10. Yes, I also would like to know why so many entries in the NCIC log are blacked out.

  11. On another note, have you heard the spike in hate disseminated across Spanish talk shows? There is a need in Miami for an NGO similar to MEMRI to watch and expose the hate spewed across the radio waves.
