Alleged Florida fraudster nabbed in Escazú

August 29, 2008

Police on Tuesday arrested a man in the southwest San José suburb of Escazú who is wanted on charges including fraud and theft in Miami, Florida, according to the International Police (Interpol).

 

Law authorities linked Cuban-U.S. citizen Pedro Julio Rodríguez, 33, and 13 others to scams, including an $11.5 mortgage fraud scheme, an Interpol press release said.

 

The release said Rodríguez moved between homes, including a residence in Real Santamaría, Heredia, north of San José, and worked at a car dealer in Escazú.
