The San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office has announced that David Alan Boucher, 56, of Upland, has been arrested and charged with 63 felony counts, including filing false documents, forgery and identity theft. Prosecutors accuse Boucher of defrauding banks and other financial firms by recording fraudulent grant deeds (title fraud) on 20 properties located in San Bernardino County.
District Attorney Michael Ramos said that Boucher held himself out as the “authorized representative” of the banks that regained title to the foreclosed properties, which had a combined value of $4.5 million.
