Agente de Fianzas de Miami se Entrega a Investigadores

10/23/2002

MIAMI – A former area bail bondsman turned himself in to authorities today on charges of grand theft, organized fraud and failure to return bail bond collateral.

Investigators with the state's Division of Insurance Fraud say Alan Staple, 51, while doing contract work for Alpha Bail Bonds, collected more than $30,000 in bond premiums from nearly 70 clients, which he failed to turn over to either the agency or the insurance company.

Staple also allegedly failed to return or delayed the return of nearly $10,000 in collateral to clients after the funds were released by the courts.

Staple was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Corrections center, where he will remain pending posting of bond. If convicted of all charges, he could face 40 years in prison.

The Department of Insurance, Division of Insurance Fraud, investigates various forms of fraud in insurance, including health, life, auto, property and workers' compensation insurance. Cualquier persona con información acerca de este caso u otra posible confabulación de fraude debe llamar a la Línea de Ayuda al Consumidor del departamento de Fraude al 1-800-378-0445. Se ofrece una recompensa de hasta $25,000 a cambio de información que conduzca a una condena en casos de fraude de seguros.
