Pennsylvania Woman Accused of Lying About Missing Jewelry

June 16, 2008

Police say an Erie, Pennsylvania woman falsely claimed her jewelry, car, tools and hair extensions were stolen from her home.

Police say 42-year-old Patricia Caffro reported more than 350 items were taken in March by someone who forced open the back door. Police say they found no evidence of a break-in.

Police say Caffro called her insurance agent a day earlier inquiring about more coverage for her jewelry.

Caffro told police the stolen items were worth more than $50,000.

Police on Thursday charged Caffro with submitting a false insurance claim with intent to defraud, attempted theft of deception and making a false report.

Caffro says she didn’t do anything wrong and told police who she believes stole from her.
