July 22, 2003

A Carmichael, Calif. man was arrested on three felony counts of insurance fraud.

Jason C. Turner, 34, was arraigned and booked into the Placer County Jail on June 12. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison and/or a maximum fine of $50,000. The Placer County District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting the case.

In March 2001, Turner reportedly claimed he was the victim of a shooting while at the Dillman Shooting Range in Lincoln, and that the unidentified shooter stole two of his guns. Turner filed a claim with State Farm Insurance for the alleged theft and was paid $3,557.

In October 2002, the case was referred to CDI’s Fraud Division and investigators questioned Turner as a suspect. He reportedly confessed that he staged the robbery and shot himself.
