BATON ROUGE – State Police arrested an inmate at the Avoyelles Parish jail after they said he filed several false insurance claims.

52-year-old Darryl Brady was recently booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on four counts of felony theft and six counts of insurance fraud.

State Police were contacted by GEICO Insurance over several claims that had been filed by Brady for damage supposedly done to his vehicle between November 2007 and March 2010.  Investigators found that six of the claims were faked, asking for the same amount of damage each time; GEICO had issued checks for four of the fraudulent claims totaling $9,462.

Detectives got an arrest warrant for Brady and found he had been convicted in Jefferson Parish for a previous criminal offense, and was being held as a Department of Corrections inmate at the Avoyelles Parish Jail.  He was then transferred to Baton Rouge, where he was booked on the new charges.
