A man was arrested in California for insurance fraud after the security system in a vehicle he reported stolen led police to where he allegedly hid the car.
31-year-old Ricardo Felix is accused of concealing the vehicle behind a family member’s home, and then reporting it stolen to Huntington police and his insurance company.
Victor Valley police said that they received a LoJack notification of the location of the vehicle and tracked it to the home in Hesperia.
Police detained four people in the home and notified Felix about the discovery of the vehicle.
Investigators later learned that Felix allegedly conspired with the family members to hide the vehicle, not knowing it was equipped with the LoJack system, Hesperia police spokeswoman Sue Rose said.
Felix was being held on $25,000 bail for alleged insurance fraud and grand theft auto.
The prosecutors office were considering filing charges against the alleged conspirators.
