Notary public arrested for forgery, misconduct

Posted: Aug 10, 2018 3:46 PM Updated:

A licensed notary public is placed under arrest after a business owner reported several of his company holdings had been transferred without his permission. Bernadette Cacayan is charged with forgery and notary misconduct. Documents state the victim had a relative handle the day to day operations at his business while he was off island.

He told authorities he later noticed a large percentage of his holdings had been transferred to his relative via several legal documents that purportedly had his name on it, as well. The victim confronted his relative who apparently refused to clarify why the property had been transferred. That's when he went to police.

The court complaint states documents included the victim's name along with two of his relatives and had apparently been notarized by the suspect. The suspect however was unable to explain the discrepancies to investigators and was later taken into custody.
