A Prince George's County officer is charged with mail fraud

A 33-year-old officer working with the Prince George's County's police force was arrested and charged with mail fraud on Friday, March 16. He's currently on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of his case.

Both the man's employer and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) began looking into the possibility that the officer had devised an auto insurance fraud scheme in the fall of 2015. They narrowed in on the time between September 2014 and January 2015 as the window during which his alleged crime was likely to have occurred. Soon after their investigation began, the officer was stripped of his police powers.

In the federal indictment that was unsealed in the case the same day as the officer's arrest, it chronicled how he had apparently told his own insurance company that one of his vehicles was stolen from an apartment parking lot.

During the course of their investigation into the matter, the officer reportedly told investigators that he'd bought the car, but never took ownership of it. Despite this, he apparently filed a police report in which he said that his vehicle had been stolen.

A statement released by the Prince George's County police chief on Friday notes that the officer was found to have told various accounts regarding his purchase of the vehicle and about how it had been stolen.

The chief notes that the fact that investigators remained committed to seeing the investigation through, although it lasted three years, shows that the county has a strong commitment to accountability.

If you've been arrested and charged with federal mail fraud, then a Clinton, Maryland, attorney can advise you of your rights in your legal matter.
