Santa Paula Man Arrested in Connection with Workers’ Comp Insurance Fraud

July 15, 2009

Armando Jaramillo Landa, 41, of Santa Paula, Calif., has been arrested and charged with one felony count of insurance fraud, the California Department of Insurance reported. Landa was booked at the Oxnard Police Department.

CDI investigators determined that Landa claimed he was injured on the job while working for Chicago for Ribs in Ventura. Landa was placed on total temporary disability by his doctor, and collected more than $30,000 in disability payments from May 2007 through August 2008. While collecting total temporary disability payments, he allegedly applied for and obtained a position at Teppan Steak House in Oxnard from December 2007 through August 2008. Landa allegedly used a fictitious name, Armando De Anda, and social security number when he applied for the job. He was specifically asked if he was employed while collecting total temporary disability payments at his deposition, and allegedly denied that he had employment.

The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office is prosecuting this case.
