by

Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit investigated Jackqueline Tolbert after receiving a fraud referral from Nationwide Insurance Company. On May 11, 2014, Tolbert reported her 2013 Mitsubishi stolen to the Philadelphia Police Department. Detectives retrieved the Philadelphia Police Stolen Auto Report which stated that the Tolbert’s 2013 Mitsubishi had been stolen between the dates of May 10, 2014 and May 11, 2014 from Wheeler Street in Philadelphia. The investigation revealed that Tolbert and her boyfriend reported the car stolen to both the Philadelphia Police and Nationwide Insurance Company because the payments for the car were too expensive to maintain. In an attempt to rid herself of the car payments, Tolbert gave the car to acquaintances and then filed a fraudulent theft claim with both the Philadelphia Police and Nationwide Insurance Company. In spite of admitting to the Philadelphia Police that the claim was fraudulent, Tolbert still gave a recorded statement to Nationwide Insurance Company in which she denied any knowledge of planning to report her car stolen. Tolbert was arrested on October 12, 2015 for Insurance Fraud, Attempted Theft by Deception, Criminal Conspiracy, Unsworn Falsifying and False Reports. She is next scheduled to appear in Philadelphia Municipal Court for a status listing on October 19, 2015.
