JACKSON – A Columbus woman has been indicted and arrested for insurance fraud for filing a false report to her insurance company.

Brittney Latham, 22, was recently indicted by the Lowndes County Grand Jury on one count of insurance fraud. The indictment charges Latham with falsifying a report to Safeway Insurance Company in Flowood “with intent to appropriate herself a benefit to which she was not entitled” related to damage which occurred to the 2001 Chevrolet Impala she was driving.

Latham was arrested by investigators of the Attorney General’s Office earlier this week and booked into the Lowndes County Detention Center.

If convicted, she faces up to three years behind bars.
