KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies arrested a north Florida couple on fraud and grand theft charges after they filed a quit-claim deed on a $1.1 million Keystone Heights house.

The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1Ajx5Hn ) reports 23-year-old Jenna Dean and husband Justin Kyle Dean turned themselves in on Dec. 8. They were released on bond.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office was contacted in September by an attorney who completes real estate transactions for Ameris Bank. The attorney told deputies that the couple filed the quit-claim deed on property that had not been sold. A quit-claim is used to transfer property from one person to another. Records show the deed included forged signatures of three bank employees.

Another couple, both physicians, bought the home for $1.1 million.

It’s not known whether the Deans have an attorney.
