Wife outs hubby’s suspicious stolen-vehicle claim in Indiana

May 16, 2019, Warsaw, IN — A Warsaw man is facing a charge of insurance fraud after allegedly having his vehicle stolen to get rid of it and collect the insurance.

Adam Conrad Pamer Jr., 43, of 407 N. CR 450E, Warsaw, was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail at 10:53 p.m. Wednesday for insurance fraud, a level 6 felony. His bond was set at $10,000 surety.

On April 18, Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputy Shawn Castillo spoke with Pamer, who said his gray 2015 Hyundai Sonata had been stolen from his driveway.

Eleven days later, KCSO deputy Josh Spangle spoke with Mary Pamer who said her husband – Adam – reported their car stolen. She found that the car was not stolen and that Adam had reported the car stolen to their insurance company, Allstate. Mary said they owed more money on the vehicle than the value of the vehicle. Mary said that after pressuring Adam, he went and retrieved it, possibly from Chicago.

Spangle spoke with Adam, who admitted he had the car stolen so he could get rid of the vehicle and file an insurance claim, according to court documents filed May 10. Adam said his plan was to receive the insurance money for the vehicle and sell parts off of it. He said he had recovered the vehicle and that he owes $17,800 on it.

Allstate confirmed that Adam filed a stolen vehicle claim on April 18.
