February 21, 2019, Athens, GA
A man from Atlanta, Georgia has been indicted by a federal grand jury in an alleged insurance fraud scheme that took place in East Texas, Washington and Hawaii, according to U.S. District Attorney Joseph Brown.
Daniel Driver was named in the indictment as a conspirator that involved obtaining insurance for a small plane and two boats. The objects were then intentionally destroyed and the conspirators filed fraudulent insurance claims.
The plane was a 1971 Cessna 500 and the boats were a 1998 Hunter Passage and a 1987 West Coast 87.
The other conspirators named were Theodore Robert Wright III, 33, formerly of Kemah, Texas, Raymond Fosdick, 42, of Houston, Edward Delima, 42, of Honolulu, and Driver.
Fosdick destroyed the Cessna in Athens at the direction of Wright. Driver and an unnamed individual intentionally sunk the West Coast 87 thirty miles off the coast of Washington. They were rescued by the coast guard.
If convicted, Driver faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
