A southeast Iowa man was arrested following an investigation by the Iowa Insurance Division’s Fraud Bureau.
46-year-old Thomas Stephanie of Washington has been charged with insurance fraud – presenting false information, a Class D felony.
Stephanie’s arrest is the result of an investigation that began this past June. Authorities say Stephanie provided false statements to an insurer in connection with a workers’ compensation insurance claim. Stephanie received insurance benefits due to these false statements.
Stephanie was taken into custody and transported to the Jefferson County Jail. He was freed after posting a $5,000 bond.
