Collier County employee resigns amid fraud investigation

Published: Updated:

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- WINK News has learned the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating allegations of fraud in Collier County Government.

New documents show supervisor, JR Gorentz admits to county leaders he modified back up documentation for the invoices. This has to do with a job involving the company, BQ Concrete.

In the paperwork, the total bill is only off by $11. But, the itemized portion was altered.  The county can’t tell us why the former employee may have done that.

WINK News went by Gortenz’ apartment Friday for a comment, but there was no answer.

Collier County already suspended its contract with the concrete company. The owner tells WINK News he was forced to close his doors.

WINK News is working to find out how much, if any, taxpayer money was lost.
