10 Arrested in Alleged Social Media Scam Targeting Celebrities & Wealthy Victims

A network of 10 people were arrested Tuesday after detectives discovered an alleged social media scam that targeted wealthy victims.

Investigators from multiple agencies called the case Operation Growing Pains, which lead to the arrest of this alleged racketeering enterprise that dealt with thousands of dollars in stolen goods, jewelry and cash.

Police say Xandi Garcia was the key person behind the organized crime operation. Garcia pleaded guilty for running a network of marijuana grow houses that led to an extensive drug trafficking operation.

“Everything from the victims social media posts to inside men. They would often place GPS tracking devices on the vehicles of their potential victims,” Miami Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said.

After Garcia’s arrest in 2018, detectives got a search warrant for his cell phone where they encountered key evidence on other crimes including alleged burglaries.
