HOLIDAY — Lisa Cabrera asked her friend, who is a notary, to perform her wedding in December, authorities say. The friend, Susan Havee, said no. Cabrera, 31, later told deputies it was because Havee doesn't approve of her fiance, James Warner, 29.
After being rejected, Cabrera allegedly stole Havee's notary stamp and used it on her marriage certificate. A report also says Cabrera faked her signature.
Cabrera and Havee, 44, worked at Quality Health Plans in Holiday. According to the report, Cabrera showed another employee the certificate and said she took Havee's stamp and forged her signature. Cabrera was fired from the job, the report states. When a deputy contacted Cabrera — who was going by Lisa Warner, her married name — she admitted stamping and signing the certificate, but she said Havee gave her permission.
Cabrera, who lives in New Port Richey, was arrested on a charge of forgery Thursday and released from the county jail that same day on $2,000 bail.
