Two Slidell, La., residents have been accused of insurance fraud and other charges linked to a Hurricane Katrina claim.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said Tuesday that enforcement agents cited 78-year-old Robert F. Angle and 77-year-old Joyce G. Angle for theft by insurance fraud, filing false public documents and injuring public records.
An investigation began after a boat the Angles claimed as lost following the 2005 storm, showed up registered in Florida. The boat in question has since been seized by detectives in Lee County, Fla.
The Angles each face up to 10 years in jail and a $3,000 fine if found guilty of theft by insurance fraud. Injuring and filing false public records each bring a fine up to $5,000 and up to five years in jail.
