Floridian Charged with Filing False Claim

November 18, 2004

A Pasco County, Florida man is charged with insurance fraud, grand theft and filing a false police report after he reportedly told investigators that he was mistaken when he reported a car and household belongings stolen when they had been shipped to Hawaii, and that another car had not been stolen but repossessed.

Arthur Koenig was arrested Monday by investigators with the Department of Financial Services, Division of Insurance Fraud, and booked into the Land o’ Lakes County Jail on a bond of $70,500.

Koenig reportedly called Liberty Mutual Insurance Company on May 4 and said that his 2002 Cadillac had been stolen from the parking lot of the Gulf View Mall on April 15.

Investigators determined, however, that the Koenigs had contracted with All Star Movers of New Port Richey to pack household items and a 2002 Cadillac for shipment to Hawaii. Koenig also reported a Corvette had been stolen from the home, but a neighbor stated that the Corvette had been towed from the driveway.
