On August 16, 2011, David Raymond, Director of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust contacted Detective Ashley Thomas of the PCIB to report allegations of Unlawful Compensation and Official Misconduct by City of Miami Homeless Assistance Outreach Program employee Carlos Vazquez.

Mr. Vazquez unlawfully solicited a recipient of the Housing Assistance Network of Dade (H.A.N.D.) program for monetary compensation, with the promise that in one year he would get her into a permanent low income townhome located in Homestead, Florida near the Homestead Air Reserve Base. Mr. Vazquez told the recipient that once he got her into the Section 8 Housing program, she could remain in the program for life. Mr. Vazquez purposely benefitted by accepting $5,000.00 from the recipient and enrolled her into the H.A.N.D. program while working in his official capacity as a public servant.

Ms. Odalys Lovett Delisle acted as a mediator for Mr. Vazquez. Ms. Delisle met with the recipient and collected the monies on behalf of Mr. Vazquez and thereafter gave all of the proceeds to him in exchange for remuneration in the form of gifts.
