Tenant Arrested For Allegedly Attempting To Dodge The Boot By Using Forged Letter Purporting To Be From Landlord Stating That Eviction Proceedings Have Been Called Off

In Cliffside Park, New Jersey, the Daily Voice reports:
  • A Cliffside Park tenant was ordered held on $15,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail after authorities charged him with forging a letter from his landlord agreeing to postpone eviction proceedings.

    Randy Brandau, 32, was arrested by detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s White Collar Crimes Unit after the judge in the case contacted them, acting Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said [].

    Brandau testified before the Superior Court judge in Hackensack in July that “he had received permission from his landlord to postpone eviction proceedings,” Grewal said.

    “To support his testimony, [Brandau] presented a letter to the court stating that he had permission to remain in the apartment and the letter purportedly contained the landlord’s signature,” he said.

    It was bogus, the prosecutor said.

    Brandau, who is single and unemployed, was charged with forgery and tampering with public records.
