Construction Special Investigations Charges Man With 13 Felonies in Fraud Scheme“By implementing one of my newest units, Construction Special Investigations, we were able to be proactive and put a stop to this criminal,” stated Sheriff Carmine Marceno. “This type of illegal activity will be investigated, and my team of detectives will find those responsible. Now, this thief from Miami is in the Lee County Jail where he belongs.”In early June 2021, our East and South District detectives were alerted to several cases of fraudulent rentals of heavy construction equipment occurring here in Lee County. Our detectives immediately began investigating and cohesively working with regional members of law enforcement to solve the cases.It was learned the suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Maximiliano Moises Fernandez, was involved in thefts of Skid Steers out of both Miami and Lee County. Through investigative techniques, our detectives discovered there were five fraudulent rentals of Skid Steers that occurred at local businesses. They also learned Fernandez was utilizing a fraudulent Texas ID to rent the heavy machinery, and would then sell the equipment to unknowing victims. Earlier this week, our detectives discovered another possible fraudulent transaction in which a man rented a Skid Steer while utilizing a fake ID. Based on this transaction, our detectives were able to determine the location of where the machinery was being delivered.On July 29th, while surveilling the delivery location, our detectives observed Fernandez accept the delivery of the machinery and then watched as he brazenly began to remove the rental decal stickers identifying the owner of the equipment.At this time, detectives apprehended Fernandez without incident. Our deputies and detectives investigating this case stopped Fernandez from stealing approximately $70,000 in cash from victims, and nearly half a million dollars in equipment from businesses.Fernandez is charged with numerous felonies to include Dealing in Stolen Property, and Grand Theft Over $20k. ...
