FDLE Arrests Key West Supervisor for Grand Theft, Fraud

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) today arrested Vincent Weiner for grand theft, a third degree felony, and homestead exemption fraud, a first degree misdemeanor.  Weiner has been employed by FDLE since 1993, and is currently a supervisor in the Key West Field Office. 


The investigation began in April after FDLE’s Office of Executive Investigations received a complaint alleging Weiner had falsified property tax documents relating to his homestead exemption for a property he owned in Monroe County.  Investigators allege that Weiner was not living at the residence at which he was claiming was homestead for the tax years 2007 to 2010.  As a result, Weiner received at least $5,918 in tax exemptions to which he was not entitled.
Weiner was booked into the Monroe County Jail.  He has been placed on leave pending the outcome of the criminal proceedings and the pending administrative investigation.
