MONROE, La. (AP) - State troopers have arrested two people accused of submitting fraudulent insurance claims in Ouachita Parish.
Investigators with the State Police Insurance Fraud Unit arrested 52-year-old Stephen Sanderson of Winnsboro on Thursday and 46-year-old Sherry Williams of Monroe last Friday. They were booked into Ouachita Correctional Center, each on 24 counts of insurance fraud.
Lt. Julie Lewis tells The News-Star Sanderson and Williams operated a windshield repair and replacement business. She says the investigation began when Louisiana Farm Bureau Insurance discovered more than 80 fraudulent claims submitted to them from Sanderson and Williams between the years of 2006 and 2010.
It was not immediately clear whether the suspects have attorneys.
