D.C. officer charged with insurance fraud

WASHINGTON – A D.C. police officer is facing insurance fraud and attempted theft charges related to alleged damage to police equipment.

Aisha McCrary has been indicted in Prince George’s County, the office of State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks announced Monday.

According to Alsobrooks’ office, McCrary is accused of filing an insurance claim that her work radio, a personal laptop and other items were damaged from a water leak in her home in July 2013.

McCrary sent a letter to the Metropolitan Police Department from a tech supervisor who an insurance adjustor later determined does not exist. She provided the same letter a second time and then tried to withdraw her claim.

An investigation found that McCrary’s radio was not damaged and she had not reported any damage to the equipment.

An arraignment is scheduled for March 21.
