N.C. Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin recently announced the arrest of Judy Ann Mills, 51, of 425 Rockwood Lane, Tryon; she is charged with one count of insurance fraud.
Investigators allege that Mills filed a claim with GEICO Insurance stating that her 2008 Acura TL was damaged when an unidentified vehicle ran her off the road. GEICO paid more than $6,000 to repair the vehicle. Witnesses later reported to investigators that Mills actually struck a fence on private property while driving impaired.
Mills was arrested on March 22 in Polk County and released by the magistrate upon her written promise to appear in court on March 28.
