An anonymous blogger named the Straw Buyer
has been dedicating a serious amount of bandwidth to bash and ridicule the Miami-Dade Police detective.
Apparently, the Straw Buyer became fascinated with Baluja this past October, when
the 11-year county cop arrested Coral Gables lawyer Delaila Estefano, John Romney, and Michael Martinez for stealing someone's identity to commit mortgage fraud.
We're guessing the Straw Buyer is pals with one, two, or all of the accused. At the time, Baluja was assigned to the county's vaunted mortgage fraud task force
. He has since been sent to the less-headline-grabbing world of grand theft auto.
Check out this recent Straw Buyer post
that dissects Baluja's home mortgage and puts the investigator's house on blast using Google Maps. Oh, snap!
Banana Republican advises the Straw Buyer to cloak his IP address before a Miami-Dade SWAT team busts down the door.
