Woman Accused Of Taking Homes In Foreclosure Appears In Court
" DENVER (CBS4)- A woman accused of taking part in a plan to take over homes under foreclosure and then sell them to others has appeared in court.

Maria Elena Carrillo has been charged with racketeering, forgery and attempting to influence a public servant. She is one of three people accused in the scheme.

She is specifically accused of taking thousands of dollars for a home in Commerce City that she didn’t own.

It is part of a much larger alleged scheme involving at least more than a dozen homes along the Front Range and into the High County.

“They actually found abandoned or foreclosed homes that they could change the locks on and move people into and tell people, ‘Give me a month mortgage payment and you can have the house,’” said Denver District Attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.
