A grand jury has indicted a Springfield, Mass. police officer in connection with insurance fraud and larceny.
Prosecutors say Anthony Trabal was charged with motor vehicle fraud and two counts of attempted larceny for allegedly claiming wages he wasn’t entitled to receive.
Trabal is accused of submitting claims to the city of Springfield and Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. for wages he lost during six months of unpaid leave following an off-duty car accident. Those claims were denied.
State insurance, fraud and unemployment experts launched investigations after Liberty Mutual determined that disability certificates submitted to support Trabal’s claim were fake.
The 41-year-old is scheduled for arraignment in Hampden Superior Court on January 3.
