A Brooklyn NYPD officer was indicted on four felony charges after it was discovered she allegedly forged a deed in her name to steal a home in the New York borough. Officer Blanche O’Neal filed a deed in 2012 stating she purchased the property, but an investigation into the transfer of rights for the property uncovered something else entirely.

NBC News reports:

Blanche O’Neal, 45, assigned to the 83rd precinct, allegedly submitted a deed in July 2012 indicating she had bought a property on Vernon Avenue for $10,000. The deed said she purchased the property from Colie Gallman, Jr., the sole heir of Lillian Hudson, who had owned the property before she died.

About three years later, O’Neal called authorities to report someone had transferred her property to a corporate entity without her permission and alleged she was the victim of deed fraud. O’Neal told detectives she had won a $5,000,000 lawsuits against the estate and was awarded the home as part of a settlement from the person she claimed was the sole heir, Colie Gallman.

As part of their investigation into O’Neal’s allegation, detectives began looking into the deed transfers on the property going back to the ownership of Lillian Hudson. They determined the deed filed by O’Neal was fraudulent, according to prosecutors.

Officers also learned that Gallman was not the sole heir of Hudson and that O’Neal provided several false statements. O’Neal was also indicted on one count of perjury back in 2014 for stating she owned the townhome.
