DELRAY POLICE SPOKESMAN TED WHITE: “I DON’T HAVE ANSWERS.”
Photo, Video Shows Local Man Under Federal Indictment Posing With, Touching Officer Inside Police Department
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Delray Beach Police Spokesman Ted White is refusing to offer clarity into the Delray Beach Police Department’s relationship with Aaron Singerman — a local businessman under Federal Indictment for fraud who was given access to the Delray Beach Police Department with a camera crew and posed for photos while touching a police officer in the midst of social distancing rules due to Coronavirus.
Singerman’s company, a nutrition supplement company, donated thousands of MRE bars to area first responders. His local company is not charged. The United States Department of Justice alleges he mislabeled nutritional supplements while working with another company — Blackstone Labs. The case is ongoing.
While the MRE bars are potentially helpful to those needing food, the optics of a man facing a decade in federal prison roaming freely in a police department is — by all counts — challenging.
Boca Raton Police did NOT let Singerman and his crew into their building, instructing him and his team to leave boxes outside. The police department promptly issued a statement to BocaNewsNow.com stating it was unaware of his indictment. MRE (Meals Ready To Eat) bars were also given to Tenet Healthcare’s Delray Medical Center. Tenet has said nothing.
In South Florida, local police officers are routinely sworn as Federal agents for some investigations. It is unclear if any Delray Beach Police officers are currently sworn locally while simultaneously assisting the United States Department of Justice.
The Delray Beach Police Department is refusing to comment. In a promotional video released by Singerman’s company, he speaks of his relationship with area police officers who, he claims, use a gym his company owns.
