Laurel resident accused of insurance fraud
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – A 34-year-old Laurel woman has been arrested on a charge of insurance fraud.
Attorney General Jim Hood says Arnisha Dean is accused of making a false and fraudulent statement to her insurance company, United Automobile Insurance Company. Hood said Friday that Dean bought insurance online on a vehicle and minutes later filed a claim for damage to a vehicle that had been wrecked a few hours earlier that same day.
Dean was booked into the Jones County Jail. Her arraignment is set for March 15. It was not immediately known if Dean is represented by an attorney who could comment on her case.
If convicted, she faces up to three years behind bars and $5,000 in fines.
