Nov. 7—A Parkville man was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison and ordered to pay nearly $225,000 in restitution by Harford County Circuit Court Judge Diane Adkins-Tobin on Friday for an insurance scheme at a Bel Air car dealership.
Kenneth Wayne Collins III, 36, pleaded guilty last month to a theft scheme involving property valued at $100,000 or more.
As an employee at the dealership from January to November 2018, he used information obtained as a service technician to file over 260 fraudulent claims for fake mechanical repairs under vehicle service contracts issued by three insurance companies: Zurich NA, Ally, and Fidelity, according to the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.
He pocketed more than $223,000 through the scheme, which continued into May 2019, the attorney general said.
Collins’ attorney, S. Todd Yeary, did not immediately return requests to comment on Tuesday.
