La. Producer Arrested for Allegedly Pocketing Premium Payments

October 6, 2006

A Shreveport, La., producer was issued a cease and desist order and summary suspension of her license before being arrested for allegedly misappropriating insurance premium payments, forging names on various insurance documents and falsifying information on licensing applications, the Louisiana Department of Insurance reported.

Adrenna Latice Johnson, 36, was served with a C&D and summary suspension of her licenses by Department of Insurance Fraud Unit Investigators late on Oct. 5 before surrendering to the State Police Insurance Fraud Unit at the Caddo Correctional Center on charges of Felony Theft.

In a four-year period, Johnson allegedly failed to account for or remit to insurance companies over $12,000 in premiums for at least 14 different consumers purchasing auto and homeowners insurance coverage. In addition, she is alleged to have forged the names of insurance consumers on various documents including applications for insurance, money orders and change of address forms. She also allegedly submitted false information to the Department of Insurance when applying for her producer licenses in 2002 and 2004.

Department of Insurance records list Johnson’s residence address as 4033 Evers Dr., Shreveport. Records also show Johnson held a Property/Casualty license from June 2000 until her current suspension.

Commissioner Donelon urges consumers who feel uneasy about any insurance-related transaction to call the Department of Insurance Fraud Unit at 225-342-4956 or 1-800-259-5300. If callers don’t want their names used, they can request that their involvement be kept confidential.
