(WFLX) - Former West Palm Beach Police Officer Carl Heflin was in court Wednesday morning facing even more charges in addition to foreclosure fraud. He has now been charged with residential burglary and grand theft.

Two neighborhoods fell victim to Heflin's alleged scheme, the Belvedere and Westgate neighborhoods, in addition to more than two dozen homes were targeted by Heflin.

Authorities say Heflin tried to put foreclosed homes into his own name something he had no legal right to do. Detectives say Heflin drew up fraudulent papers he later used to try and rent out those foreclosed properties.

With a total of 30 homes, detectives say, Heflin brought in around $6,000 a month in additional rent money. Police believe he would break into homes to gain entry, and then take them over.

Detectives say Heflin admitted that he targeted homes with overgrown grass and no trespassing signs.

The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office has released the following addresses as those involved in Heflin's scheme:
