November 20, 2007

North Carolina officials arrested a mother and her son, both of Littleton, N.C. and charged them with insurance fraud, according to Insurance Commissioner Jim Long.

Ida Rosser Macon, 66, was charged with one count each of insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit insurance fraud. Macon’s son, Fontay Lakia Macon, 28, was charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and failing to report an accident. They were processed at the Halifax County Detention Center.

The arrests stem from an investigation into an alleged April 2 auto accident involving Fontay Macon. Department of Insurance investigators allege that Macon was under the influence when he wrecked his vehicle, and they further allege that both suspects then provided fraudulent information to the insurance company when filing a claim regarding the accident. Fontay Macon allegedly received $7,400 from the insurance company.
