Detective Goralch is being recognized for his research into the crime of, “Adverse Possession”. Many in the South Florida area are misinterpreting the concept of Adverse Possession with the intent to, “steal the use of a residence” that does not belong to them. Specifically in Coral Springs a subject investigated by Detective Gorlach was filing Quit Claim Deeds on foreclosed homes with the Broward County Clerk of Courts. The subject would then in essence take possession of the homes and in turn rent the properties for profit despite the fact the homes were actually owned by the bank. Through Detective Gorlach’s diligent detective work he was able to work with the bank in order to prosecute the subject under the terms of Grand Theft in excess of $100,000 while also bringing light to the growing problem of misappropriating the Adverse Possession concept.
