ORLANDO, Fla. —
Dozens of notaries are now being investigated after an Action 9 investigation exposed their criminal histories. We found convicted con men and thieves still had state licenses to notarize legal documents.
Surveillance cameras helped investigators build a case against Ricky Collins, who was found guilty of a yearlong burglary spree through tourist hotels. But Action 9 discovered he was still licensed by Florida to notarize legal documents.
Collins was one of 400 felons our investigation exposed who remained licensed notaries.
