Sacramento Man Accused of Forgery

While in custody on unrelated charges, Darrell Demetrius Brown, 30, was booked at the Sacramento County Jail on one count of insurance fraud.

According to an investigation by the CDI Criminal Investigations Branch’s Fraud Division, Brown alleged he did not receive two Temporary Disability checks in the amount of $452.56 each. Brown signed an Affidavit of Forgery on swearing under oath that he did not receive or cash the checks, and subsequently cashed a replacement check re-issued by National Union Fire Insurance Company.

The investigation further revealed that when one of the allegedly forged checks was cashed, a thumbprint belonging to Brown was placed on the check, matching the thumbprint Brown placed on the Notary book when he signed the Affidavit of Forgery when compared by the Department of Justice Latent Prints Unit.
