March 11, 2014. Command Investigations, Lion Insurance and Packard Claims announce the arrest of Juan Carlos Garcia for Insurance Fraud resulting from an SIU anti-fraud investigation.
As Packard Claims’ SIU Department, Command Investigations initiated an investigation on Garcia and uncovered that the claimant was utilizing a fraudulent Social Security Number in an attempt to obtain Workers’ Compensation benefits. Command Investigations determined that there was enough evidence on this claim to support a referral to the Florida Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF).
DIF evaluated the evidence, issued an arrest warrant and Garcia was subsequently arrested on Thursday, February 20, 2014 in Lee County, Florida. Juan Carlos Garcia was charged with Insurance Fraud violating F.S. 440.105.
As part of Command’s Restitution Management Program™, all victim’s rights will be asserted in close coordination with the State Attorney’s Office during the criminal pre-trail phase.
Garcia posted bond of $1,500 and is awaiting criminal trial.
All parties are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
