A 45-year-old San Diego woman has been charged with 61 felonies, according to the San Diego District Attorney’s Office.
On Tuesday afternoon, Dianna “Harmony” Brown plead not guilty to the charges in San Diego Superior Court.
Brown allegedly filed more than 50 false deeds on foreclosed homes that did not belong to her. She has been charged with 61 felony counts including burglary, filing a false instrument and possession of methamphetamine.
The DA accused Brown of targeting roughly 30 homes in South Bay. She allegedly claimed to be the owner of a fake business that would cut off realtor lock boxes, break into the homes and have them re-keyed before renting them to victims through Craigslist.
If convicted of the crimes, Brown faces nearly 40 years in state prison and is being held on a $300,000 bail.
She will reappear in court on Feb. 17.
