January 15, 2014: 21 year old Jahsan Truitt is now facing Insurance Fraud and Forgery charges.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit (IFU) detectives began to investigate Jahsan Truitt after receiving a referral from the Philadelphia Police Department 18th District. On October 16, 2013, two police officers were conducting a vehicle investigation in the area of 59th and Ludlow Streets. During the course of their investigation, they stopped Truitt’s 2001 Ford and he presented the officers with an Infinity Insurance financial responsibility identification card. The officers then contacted Infinity Insurance and were told that the policy was not valid. The officers then referred the case to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit (IFU).
Detectives retrieved Penndot documents which revealed that the 2001 Ford belonged to Truitt and had been registered with the same fraudulent Infinity Insurance financial responsibility identification card. Detectives then contacted a representative from Infinity Insurance who confirmed that the listed policy number was not valid. Truitt was arrested for Insurance Fraud and Forgery on January 15, 2014 and is next scheduled to appear for a status listing on February 10, 2014 in Philadelphia Municipal Court.
