Philadelphia – Detectives from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit arrested Antoine Laster after receiving an insurance fraud referral from a citizen. During the course of investigating a 1994 Mercury, detectives learned from the car’s Penndot title history that Laster had registered the 1994 Mercury with an American Independent Insurance Company financial responsibility identification card. Detectives called a representative from American Independent Insurance Company and learned that Laster was never insured by the company and that the listed policy number corresponded to a policy owned by another customer. Laster was arrested for Insurance Fraud and Forgery on July 10, 2016. He is next scheduled to appear for a status listing in Philadelphia Municipal Court on July 18, 2016.
