Ashley Nicorvo selected as Karen Reyes Award recipient  (Published 01-10-2019)

Bradenton - Manatee County Tax Collector's employee Ashley Nicorvo received the Karen Reyes Award presented by the Florida Auto Theft Intelligence Unit (FATIU) at their annual training held in Daytona Beach. Ms. Nicorvo, an Associate II in the Customer Solutions and Associate Development Department, was nominated by the Tax Collector's Office for her help in the recovery of a 2016 Range Rover valued at $85,000.

On November 24, 2017, Ms. Nicorvo was presented a New York title for the 2016 Range Rover. While processing the title transaction in the State's system, a response prompted her to question the legitimacy of the information presented. She took the transaction/paperwork to management for additional research. They discovered that the vehicle had been reported stolen from Florida on November 17 of that year. Law enforcement was contacted, who further investigated the vehicle. Because of Ms. Nicorvo's attention to detail and commitment to identifying fraud, the Range Rover was ultimately confirmed as a stolen vehicle and recovered by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

The Karen Reyes Award is dedicated to the memory of former Florida Highway Patrol Trooper and Division of Motor Vehicles Field Supervisor Karen Reyes. It is given to those individuals who have investigated title or odometer fraud related cases that result in an extraordinary recovery value, or arrest and conviction of multiple individuals, or for those individuals that assist law enforcement or investigators in the investigation of those cases.
