Former City Police Officer Sentenced For Felony Theft
In Worker’s Compensation Conspiracy

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that former Baltimore City police officer Andre Alan Stover, 40, of Woodlawn in Baltimore County, was sentenced in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County for stealing approximately $153,000 in fraudulent worker’s compensation checks from CompManagement, Inc. Having accepted the defendant’s plea of guilty to the charge of felony theft, the Honorable John Grason Turnbull sentenced Stover to five years incarceration with all but six months suspended and five years probation. The Court further ordered that the six months incarceration be served through home detention and that Stover pay $153,000 in restitution.

Between May, 2003 and April, 2004, Stover received over $153,000 in fraudulent disability and medical payment checks. He admitted to meeting the claims adjustor assigned to his worker’s compensation claim on a street corner, accepting fraudulent checks, cashing them at a nearby check cashing establishment, and returning to split the proceeds.

This 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. In making today’s announcement, Attorney General Gansler thanked Assistant Attorney General Emmet Davitt for his work on the case.
