A Fort Lauderdale man is been charged with grand theft after at least two property owners almost lost their real estate due to warranty deed fraud, according to police.
According to the arrest report, Roosevelt Rendale Permenter, 34, was detained on Tuesday for allegedly creating, signing, notarizing, and filing warranty deed paperwork at the Broward Property Appraiser’s Office using false information about the property owners.
According to the study, Permenter and a lady secretly transferred ownership of the homes in May and July from the actual owners.
The names and locations of the previous owners were removed from the report, but investigators stated they were not aware that 4R&K Supplies Inc. had acquired ownership of both buildings.
According to the police, the stolen goods were worth $276,070 and $459,000 respectively.
According to documents submitted to the Florida Department of State, Permenter is identified as the vice president of 4R&K Supplies Inc. and Kaishonta Thomas is listed as the firm president.
According to records, Permenter is accused of grand theft exceeding $100,000, fraud, and submitting fraudulent paperwork.
He continues to be detained in the Broward County Jail due to $34,000 in bail.
It wasn’t known whether Thomas would also be charged.
