The state attorney general’s office tells the Hattiesburg American Terrell McAndrews of Heidelberg has been indicted and arrested on one count of insurance fraud following indictment by a Jones County grand jury.

McAndrews is accused of defrauding State Farm Insurance Co. by filing a false claim reporting his 2006 Nissan Sentra had been stolen.

He faces up to three years in prison and a $5,000 fine if convicted of insurance fraud.

McAndrews’ arraignment has not been scheduled. He is incarcerated in Jones County on unrelated charges.
