Baltimore City Police Officer Indicted for Fraud and Attempted Theft

BALTIMORE, MD ( August 21, 2009) - Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler announced today that Baltimore City Police Officer Hikeem Crampton Sr., age 30 of Rosedale, Maryland, was indicted in the Circuit Court for Frederick County for insurance fraud and attempted felony theft. No trial date has been set.

The charges allege that during October 4, 2008, through December 17, 2008, Crampton fraudulently claimed his Cadillac Escalade had been stolen when, in fact, he had traded it in for another vehicle the preceding January.

Attempted felony theft is punishable by a maximum sentence of fifteen (15) years incarceration and a $25,000 fine. Felony insurance fraud is punishable by a maximum sentence of fifteen (15) years incarceration and a $10,000 fine.

The indictment follows a joint investigation by the Regional Auto Theft Task Force, the Insurance Fraud Division of the Maryland Insurance Administration and the Office of the Attorney General. A criminal charge is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and the defendant is presumed innocent unless the State proves his guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
