The last of four people charged with identity fraud in a case involving the sale of a Windsor Hills duplex has been arrested, the sheriff’s department announced Wednesday.

Bridgett Dennis, 49, who had been charged along with the other defendants on June 27, was arrested Tuesday by deputies from the sheriff’s South Los Angeles Station, according to Deputy Ryan Rouzan of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

The other charged defendants are Waymon Robertson, 58; Donald Seastrong, 55; and Kimberly Simpson, 43, Rouzan said.

Authorities allege that in October, the defendants took part “in an elaborate scheme” involving the theft of the victim’s identity.

“False documents were created and the victim’s signature was forged on them, including a grant deed transferring ownership of the victim’s duplex,” Rouzan said.

“The victim’s duplex was sold for $350,000 without the victim’s knowledge or permission, and the defendants allegedly split the sales proceeds.”

Robertson, who was in custody in connection with another case, was arraigned on July 3, while Seastrong and Simpson surrendered and appeared in court the same day, Rouzan said.
