Detective Admits to Pocketing Jewelry While Serving Search Warrant

A Miami-Dade police detective has come clean about stealing some bling.

Karel Rosario, a 19-year veteran, pleaded guilty earlier this week on Tuesday to stealing expensive jewelry while on-duty during a search warrant.

According to Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Rosario came clean about taking a Cartier watch, a bracelet and a couple of other pieces of jewelry in May from a suspect’s home. The suspect was being investigated for allegedly selling pharmaceutical drugs.

WSVN reports that Rosario attempted to resell the jewelry to local jewelers but failed. After one of the jewelers recalled selling the same pieces to a Yulia Martinez and her husband, the authorities were notified.

Rosario then attempted to sell one of the pieces to an undercover cop for a whopping $17,000 resulting in him being charged.

Rosario’s sentencing is set for Jan. 22. He faces 15 years of prison time but, according to WSVN, Rosario will get a much less sentencing.

NBC reports that Rosario also nabbed with him a Rolex Daytona Watch, a Bulgari ring, a Bulgari bracelet, a David Yurman bracelet and a few bottles of pricey perfumes.

“Every police department depends on the integrity and professionalism of its officers,” said Rundle in a statement. “Detective Rosario sold out his integrity the minute he picked up that jewelry. He has let down the good people of Miami-Dade County and every professional police officer who risks death each day to uphold our laws.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
