A former Baltimore police officer and a private company employee were indicted yesterday on felony theft charges, with authorities alleging that the pair conspired to steal about $153,000 in fraudulent workers' compensation benefit checks, according to the Maryland attorney general's office.
Authorities allege that Andre Stover, a Woodlawn resident and former officer, conspired with Natalie Mack, a former insurance claims adjuster with CompManagement Inc.
Investigators allege that Mack issued the checks to Stover in exchange for a percentage of proceeds in a scheme from May 2003 to April 2004. A city police spokesman said that Stover was fired in April 2003.
Stover was indicted in Baltimore County on felony theft charges; Mack was indicted in the city on charges of felony theft, felony insurance fraud and conspiracy, the attorney general's office said.
The investigation was conducted by the Maryland Insurance Administration and the attorney general's office after a tip was received from the Baltimore solicitor's office.
