(WXMI) – New details have emerged about a Kalamazoo officer who was accused of fraud in Georgia this month.
Documents obtained by FOX 17 say Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety (KDPS) Officer Catrice Lockett and fiancé Brian Lee filed a report claiming their truck was stolen at Sweetwater Creek State Park, which is located near Atlanta. Located just east of.
The pair then used that report to file an insurance claim, the documents allege, which would have netted them tens of thousands of dollars, since the insurance company had deemed the truck a total loss.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office investigated the claim and reportedly determined that the report was filed out of state and never left the couple’s possession.
Lockett and Lee are both facing charges of allegedly filing a false police report, insurance fraud and conspiracy to commit a felony.
KDPS has since placed Lockett on leave while the investigation progresses.
