The condo president and two top managers were arrested and charged with stealing from a unit in their North Bay Village building. 

Police arrested the condo president and two top managers just days after a Bob Norman investigation into corruption in a North Bay Village condominium. They were charged with grand theft.


But a day after the arrests they were back in the office like nothing happened. One of the owners was upset and said in front of the camera: "And today they returned to work like nothing happened." Reporter Bob Norman confirmed this: "Residents at the Kennedy House Condo were in disbelief today after their board's president, Leonardo Falcon, and two top-managers, condo manager Rachel Badilla and her assistant Alejandro Salcedo, were arrested and charged with Grand Theft and organized scheme to defraud. It's the second criminal case 

involving Badilla who was charged with forgery and theft last August. And this morning they returned like nothing happened."

Badilla refused comment. So did her stepfather, Robert Dugger, who is on the Kennedy House payroll as consultant. Dugger is a former North Bay Village commissioner who was removed from office by former Governor Jeb Bush after he was hit with corruption charges and was later convicted of these charges.

Falcon, Badilla and alcedo are accused of ordering association employees to strip a kitchen, causing a total estimated damage of about $ 25,000.

This story may be far from over. The police investigation into these alleged crimes is still ongoing.
