After evading authorities for nearly four months, one fraudster is finally sitting still as she awaits trial, held under a $2.4 million secured bond. North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin has confirmed the arrest of Latrisha Yvette Godley, a 31-year-old Greenville resident who stands accused of insurance fraud and various other fraud-related charges.

Investigators believe that, on July 29, 2008, Godley’s daughter operated her car without her knowledge and hit a concrete post while driving it. At the time of the collision, Godley did not have insurance. However, she was able to obtain coverage from Allstate Insurance Company a few days after the incident. According to the arrest warrant, Godley then submitted a claim for damages to the car totaling more than $3,000. She also claimed that the wreck occurred on Aug. 1, 2008.
