Real Estate Fraud
Friday, August 11
Investigators from the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Real Estate Fraud Unit arrested Goldie Vicencio Santiago, 27, of Redlands, on Friday, August 11, 2006. Santiago was arrested at her business, located in the 3600 block of East Highland Ave. in San Bernardino. Officer Chandler from the San Bernardino Police Department assisted in the arrest. Santiago was arrested for numerous counts of forgery and filing forged documents with the County Recorder's Office, all felonies.
In May and June 2006, Ms. Santiago allegedly forged the victim's name on Quitclaim deeds. She then took out loans against at least two separate parcels of property in the County of San Bernardino for approximately $752,000, without the victim's knowledge. The residential properties were located in the cities of Hesperia and Colton. Officials became aware of Santiago's scam in early July 2006, after the Colton Police Department contacted the District Attorney's Real Estate Fraud Prosecution Unit. Colton officers had conducted an initial investigation into the Colton forgery and arrested Santiago in June.
District Attorney Investigators then conducted an in-depth investigation into Santiago's activities and six felony charges of forgery and fraud for both the Colton and Hesperia incidents were issued. Santiago was booked into the Sheriff's Central Detention Center and her bail was set at $500,000.00. Santiago will be arraigned next Tuesday on the charges.
