Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit investigated Jessica Santiago after receiving a referral from GEICO Insurance Company. On December 8, 2012, Santiago reported to both the Philadelphia Police Department and GEICO Insurance Company that her 2011 Dodge Charger had been stolen from the 2700 block of N. Orianna Street in Philadelphia. Insurance Fraud Unit Detectives retrieved the Philadelphia Police Department Investigation Report which stated that Santiago’s 2011 Dodge Charger had been stolen around three-thirty in the morning of December 8, 2012. Detectives also retrieved Philadelphia Police Non-Reportable Accident Report which stated that the same vehicle owned by Santiago was involved in an accident three hours after it had been reported stolen. The investigation revealed that GEICO Insurance Company paid thirteen thousand dollars to Santiago for the loss of her Dodge Charger; however, Santiago later gave the company a second recorded statement in which she admitted that her vehicle had been in an accident but was never stolen. Santiago was arrested on October 26, 2015 for Insurance Fraud, Theft by Deception and False Reports. She is next scheduled to appear in Philadelphia Municipal Court for a status listing on November 2, 2015.
