Kelli Reyes, of Wauseon, Ohio, has been sentenced by the Fulton County Common Pleas Court to 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to felony insurance fraud, Lieutenant Governor and Department of Insurance Director Mary Taylor announced.
Reyes was also ordered to pay the prosecution costs and $1,148.15 in restitution to insurance company State Farm.
The department began its investigation in November 2011 after being contacted by State Farm. The insurer received a suspicious claim from Reyes regarding items stolen from her residence during an alleged break-in earlier in the year. The department found Reyes submitted two false receipts in an attempt to substantiate ownership of assorted power tools and bicycles taken during the alleged break-in.
