An investigation by the Miami-Dade Consumer Services Department and the Hialeah Police Department on May 20 uncovered 14 unlicensed businesses operating as movers, locksmiths and mobile mechanics. Consumer Services Department enforcement officers issued 17 citations. The police arrested one person, who was found to be the subject of a $10,000 bench warrant, and he was transported to the TGK Correctional Facility. Twelve others signed notices to appear in court on citations for failing to register with the local business tax office, and two were cited for driving with suspended licenses.

The operation aimed to help ensure local consumers are not taken advantage of by unlicensed workers who have not undergone required background checks and training, and to curtail business practices that create unfair competition.
