ORLANDO, Fla. -- JSO Undersheriff Dwain Senterfitt attended Wednesday's news conference in Orlando.
He stood alongside investigators from all over the state as the FDLE detailed what it had uncovered about the alleged money laundering and illegal gambling scheme centered around the non-profit, Allied Veterans of the World.
That investigation led to the arrest of FOP President Nelson Cuba.
Senterfitt said Cuba's name first popped up in a separate investigation in 2007.
"We started finding like dummy corporations that were being opened and closed. Just things that didn't look right, quite honestly," said Senterfitt.
Then in 2009, the undersheriff said JSO joined the investigation into Internet cafe's operated by Allied Veterans of the World, several of which are located in Jacksonville.
Again, Senterfitt said Cuba's name popped up. But he wouldn't talk specifics.
Action News asked, "Was Nelson investing in Allied Veterans? Or was he running one of these centers?"
Senterfitt replied, "I really can't get into details. It probably was neither one of those, exactly. But there was money moving to Nelson. He was involved."
Senterfitt called Cuba's arrest disappointing. He says it's bad enough when a regular police officer gets in trouble, worse when it's the union president.
