Woman arrested for attempting to defraud insurance company
FAYETTE (AP) — A woman accused of attempting to defraud an insurance company out of thousands of dollars has been arrested.
News outlets report 30-year-old Kyomi M. Fulton, of Fayette, was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of insurance fraud for allegedly attempting to defraud Geico Insurance out of more than $3,200.
Attorney General Jim Hood said in a press release that Fulton reported a 2000 Grand Marquis as stolen and then submitted a false repair report claiming that she had put a new engine in the vehicle before it was stolen. An indictment stated that no such repairs had been made.
If convicted, Fulton faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer.
