 Wednesday, July 1, 2015


A Harrisburg area man is accused of collecting more than $70,000 in fraudulent insurance claims by saying his home flooded to the point he had to stay in a hotel. An investigation into the claims, however, proved the hotel fictitious and the claims a scam, according to the Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General. David Lee Stewart, 36, has been charged with insurance fraud, theft by deception and criminal attempt theft by deception in connection with claims he made while living at his rental property in the 3000 block of Green Street, according to charging documents.
