Riverside County District Attorney Makes Felony Arrest

4/16/2018

 On April 5th, 2018 the Special Investigative Unit of RJN Investigations, Inc. was formally notified by Senior Investigator Kurt Lackman of the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office as to the arrest of the claimant while at his place of employment. The claimant was employed by Robertson’s Ready Mix as a truck driver. The claimant allegedly sustained a left ankle sprain when he was climbing down a ladder and stepped on a large rock. Due to the fact that the claimant’s complaints remained subjective and he complained of no improvement in his symptoms, a surveillance investigation was initiated. During surveillance, the claimant was observed traveling to Knott’s Berry Farm where he was seen standing, walking without the assistance of any ambulatory devises as well as riding on various rides. A deposition was completed where the claimant was noted to making multiple misrepresentations under the penalty of perjury. The claimant stated he had gone to Knott’s Berry Farm (the day before the deposition) but had to use a wheelchair the entire day. The claimant also testified that he did not go on any rides that day which was also a misrepresentation. In compliance with the regulations set forth by the California Department of Insurance, the case was then referred by the RJN SIU to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office as well as the California Department of Insurance Fraud Division. Upon completion of a detailed criminal investigation by the District Attorney, an arrest warrant was formally issued for the claimant. On April 5th, the RJN SIU was notified that the claimant was arrested while at work in front of other coworkers and taken away in hand cuffs. He was booked into County Jail and formally notified of the 3 Felony Charges against him. The claimant is scheduled for an Arraignment on June 7th, 2018.
