FORMER CITY POLICE OFFICER CONVICTED OF FELONY THEFT IN WORKERS’ COMP CONSPIRACY

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Andre Alan Stover, 40, a former Baltimore City police officer, pled guilty in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County to stealing approximately $153,000.00 in fraudulent workers’ compensation checks from CompManagement, Inc. The Honorable John Grason Turnbull ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set sentencing for March 13, 2007. The maximum for felony theft on each count is 15 years in prison and a fine of $25,000.00. Natalie Mack, a former employee of CompManagement, Inc., has also been charged with felony theft, felony insurance fraud and conspiracy. Her trial date has been set for March 19, 2007.

The investigation disclosed that Stover received over $153,000.00 in fraudulent disability and medical payment checks between May of 2003 and April of 2004. Stover admitted to a conspiracy wherein Stover would meet Natalie Mack, the CompManagement, Inc. claims adjustor who handled Stover’s workers’ compensation claim, on a street corner outside her office, accept the fraudulent checks, cash them at a nearby check cashing establishment and return to split the proceeds with Mack.

Stover’s conviction follows a joint investigation by the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney General. This matter was referred for criminal investigation by the Baltimore City Solicitor’s Office.
