A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Nikishia Young, 49, of Snellville for fraud and forgery charges, two counts of Insurance Fraud, one count of Identity Fraud, and three counts of Forgery in the 1st Degree, Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King announced in a news release.
The arrest warrants were issued on March 16 by a Gwinnett County judge charging Young with two counts of Insurance Fraud, one count of Identity Fraud, and three counts of Forgery in the 1st Degree.
“Our Criminal Investigations Division discovered that Ms. Young initiated renter’s insurance claims for the amount of $8,100,” said Commissioner King. “The accused had a policy with Liberty Mutual Insurance and stole another individual’s identity to open a policy with Progressive Insurance. She then attempted to secure funds for fake damage using three fraudulent Home Depot receipts.”
